fuschia, Finnerty Gardens, University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada

Finnerty Gardens, University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, CanadaThe fuschia above was photographed in Finnerty Gardens on the University of Victoria Campus. Victoria prides itself on its many beautiful gardens and Finnerty, while not so famous as Butchart Gardens or the Abkhazi Garden is nevertheless well worth a visit. Unlike the two aforementioned gardens, Finnerty Gardens is free. While the pleasant walks are thickly planted with spring-blooming rhododendrons, it has some other nice blooms even at this time of year.
Well, even though most of us spell the name of this flower fuschia, Wikipedia informs us that it is properly spelled fuchsia. OK?

Superb macro shots on the flowers, I liked the composition of the first one, even if you're trying to look at the flower in the front, the one at the back which is blurred can not be ignored! Awesome!

I've posted a new picture of which I can't figure out the title... thought, may be I should take help of my friends... do check it out... - Pixellicious Photos

These are stunning photos, I wish there were more. The fuscia is exquisite...I live in San Fransisco as a child in row housing by the ocean. All the doors ways where set in alcoves and many of these alcoves had large old luscious fuscia plants carpeting these alcoves and dripping from the ceilings. They were shock of colour on many grey, foggy coastal days.
All this to say that you photo took me there instantly.
Smiles and thanks
