Don't Laugh At My Baby *lol*

Well, after looking at all the beautiful pictures you all have of numerous blossoms at one time, I thought I would share the 1 flower I was lucky to get this year.

I was given this as a tiny cutting from someone and put it in a large pot. It looked so funny in this huge pot at first.

I put it outside this summer and babied it along a little.

It is now over 4 feet tall and I brought it in for the winter (it takes up my whole kitchen *lol*).

It finally bloomed and I have been "posing" the flower for picture after picture. I simply love it. I would LOVE a cutting of a double if ever someone might have one to share.

Because I live in Maine I need to try to winter it over. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We would never laugh at your beautiful brug baby here. We are here to encourage and enable your brug habit.

WickedHeart, just encourage more, deeper addiction, right? :))LOL

Kim, your baby is beautiful. There's no reason to laugh. Maybe I have a reason to cry, because I lost my first buds :(
I am happy for you.


RE: Don't Laugh At My Baby *lol*

I have a double white I will send you a cutting of.


RE: Don't Laugh At My Baby *lol*

I think you should get points for the lovely deep green leaves with no bug holes in them! Congrats, the flower is lovely too.

Hi Kim..nice to run into you here.
It's a lovely brug! I love the color. Nothing is as dramatic and anticipated as that first bloom. You'd have thought I gave birth when mine first flowered. I took pictures..invited people was an event.!:) I recently brought it (an unnamed yellow) into the garage and the flowers make the whole garage smell amazing. It's new to me too so I hope we both have luck with this overwintering thing.

your brug is beautiful! I lost 5 out 6 cuttings so you're already doing better than I could ever do! And I asolutely love your fuchsia! Do you keep it in the house all year?
