Today's Flower #11

My friend Luiz and Denise have a Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7GMT is the post time.

Today's Flower is the Dollar Princess Bush Fuchsia. I have two hanging baskets on the porch. I love the flower on the Fuchsia and it is very easy to capture for a show. This bloom had three close together.
The baskets are fairly full and continue to put out neat flowers.
This ones flowers is a deeper purple and red then the other.
I have a hard time not showing of it's fancy flower.
The other basket has a lighter purple in the flower.
It also puts on a neat show.
I do hope you enjoyed the Fuschia as Today's Flower.
News I would like to share with my friends in todays flowers:
My World Tuesday is a new meme that will be starting on Monday October 20th at 8:00 PM GMT / 3:00 PM EDT. This is your chance to share photos of the world around you. It is brand new and will develop as the weeks go by. Please stop by on Monday night or Tuesday to see who has joined and if you want to come along. I would like to see where you live and what revolves around your world . The latest Sky Watch Team is also running this meme.

These flowers are sometimes good to use to attract some hummingbirds. But mine are gone for the winter. At least none are around now.

I like the photos you took of the flowers. Nice work.

Beautiful Fuchsias and so well photographed. I too had 4 hanging baskets lushly flowering last summer and only managed to save one from our searing, dessicating north winds straight off the desert.
