The Beautiful Fuchsia

The Fuchsia will always remind me of my Mom! Come Mother's Day, they were her only request. To look out our front window and see 3 beautiful hanging Fuchsias on our front porch was a reminder that Summer would soon be here. As kids, we didn't understand that they cost money, so to hear my Mom yell at us when we'd pop the new flower buds was something quite common. To have a hanging Fuchsia was also a guarantee that you'd soon see a hummingbird.

The Fuchsia is a constant reminder for me of my childhood and is something that I've chosen to carry with me as I've moved away from home. I love them...and every time I look at one, it will always remind me of my Mom and Summertime.
