One of the most exciting things to discover on moving to Canada was the tiny, wee Hummingbird. The first time I saw one I thought it was an over-sized moth hyped up on sugar-filled sports drink!
Hummingbird is the One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells this week.
For me there is nothing quite like a Fuchsia in full bloom. Last year we were lucky enough to have a Fuchsia plant in almost half of our hanging flower pots but this year we have only one pot containing a Fuchsia which is the very reason I bought it!
I had to have at least one Fuchsia but after almost a month I was beginning to wonder if I’d been given incorrect information until…
Yes, summer is officially here. I’m not sure when their official flowering time is but for me, whenever I see a Fuchsia in full-bloom I think of summer in Kitimat.
Another reason I adore Fuchsia is that my hummingbirds also seem to adore them but as I’ve created what seems like a little shrine for this plant this year, it appears the hummingbirds aren’t comfortable with this location.
You never know though, summer is only just upon us and the buds only just beginning to bloom so perhaps the hummingbirds will have a change of heart but… “mum, how much longer?”
