I find this plant so fascinating with its outstanding shade of red. It burns in the shadows of the gloomy overcast days, warming the hearts of the any random ramblers like me…

    Fuschia is West Cork’s tourism symbol – lovely hedgerows everywhere teaming with fuschia and monbretia. 🙂


    1. The first time I saw this plant was when I went on a holiday in Kerry, it looked magical to me, then we moved to Connemara and there is plenty there as well. I love it, but because of its crimson colour i find it difficult to capture well on photographs. I am a bit demanding on myself. But I am rarely happy with a fuschia photo.This one came out well enough so I feel encouraged to share 🙂 thanks for you visit
