Ballet of the fuschia blossoms
Upcoming photos will provide a glimpse at the profusion of flowers we found everywhere.
Not a flower expert, I am relying on my friends' info that these lovely things are fuschia. These grew everywhere by the side of the road. Just look at the grace of these delicate tendrils arching toward the earth; quite a contrast from the assertive hibiscus below with its face turned outward and petals strongly unfurled. I've said before how indebted I am to photography, as it has helped me see nature's tiny wondrous details so much more clearly. And what a privilege it is to be able to relive scenes that would otherwise only be a momentary blur in memory.
