The fall of the flowers is so enchanting! They remind me of a fuschia, but there appears to be no contrasting colour!

Lily the flower is gorgeous, I believe it is some kind of fushia.

That must be a fuchsia I thought and I see there are more people here who believe that. Lovely colour and picture.

How lovely! I've always heard it called a lipstick plant, though I don't think that's the real name.

I agree with those who say it's a fuchsia—maybe Fuchsia magellanica, not quite in full bloom yet.

Alexa said...

Forgot to say: gorgeous photo!
