Grateful Joys




This fuchsia was a Mothers Day present a couple of years ago. It continues to amaze and delight me.

And hurrah for self-sown hollyhocks that grace our porch steps.



The fig planted in the greenhouse is heavy with fruit.


One of many Angel Wing Begonias descended from one of my grandmother's.


Volunteer Morning Glories-always beautiful--usually welcome.

Hollyhocks and Morning Glories can be delightful if they volunteer in the right places although I do concur with the ‘usually’ with regard to the latter.

I too welcome volunteers and move them if they aren't in the right place. YOurs are all lovely.

That fuchsia is such a lovely, delicate colour.

Have you ever put the fuchsia on the deck to see if a hummingbird will visit it?
I envy you the figs! My maternal grandfather grew them (along with grapes he used to make wine) and I could eat them until I started feeling sick. Fresh figs do not show up in supermarkets. But there is nothing in the world quite like them, so you are fortunate indeed.

It's on the front porch and does attract the occasional hummer.

Lovely blooms, both those with history, and those that just dropped in to visit!
