WW: Lord Beaconsfield, Fuchsia Flowers

Fuchsia Photo

"I was very against pink and purple when I was young, because they were girls' colors. But that was only because I didn't want people to write me off for what I can do. When I got into my 20s, I decided that was stupid."
- Danica Patrick

I wasn't fond of the color pink or even flowers when I was young, either. As you can see from my trips to Longwood Gardens, I've long outgrown the silly phase of not wanting to be considered too "girly."

  2. Those flowers are gorgeous aren't they? I love how each portion is a different hue of pink. A Miracle or a Scientific wonder!

  18. The intensity of the colors is amazing! I found that when I started making art, I was much more open to pinks and purples than if I had to wear them.

  20. My parents--long gone from this earth--always kept fuchsia plants in our yard. My father kept a wonderful and immaculate garden, perfect grasses, flowers and robust vegetables. I miss that. I don't have his green thumb. I have my memories.
