Fuchsia Tree, Close Up!

Wow! What a stunner! Today was one of my rare workdays that I was able to take an after break and walk around for a few minutes. Today was a break from our recent rains, too, so I welcomed the chance to get out and soak up the sun!

The walk was certainly worth it when I came across this lovely creature. My walking companion noted its beauty and wondered what it was. I was not yet sure, but snapped a photo with my trusty cell phone camera, to identify it later when I had more time.

I figured it out when I got home. I have not seen such a tree before, though I have heard of them, certainly. It is very unusual around here. The leaves are also quite beautiful.

I have grown fuchsias as a container plant before, and while the container plants are beautiful, seeing the telltale “eardrop” flowers awash in a tree on a random walk certainly stopped me in my tracks.  Pure loveliness!
