32/366: future of the fuchsia

A bunch of flowers is lovely, but receiving a flowering plant can be even nicer, as you continue to be given flowers by that person or persons for years to come. Some English visitors gave me a fuchsia in a pot about twelve years ago as a thank you for inviting them over for afternoon tea, and the plant is still alive.

I nearly lost this bush during the drought a few years ago, but fortunately fuchsias are fairly hardy and it regenerated itself. It has varied between being a surviving and at times a flourishing fuchsia.

Since it’s getting a little straggly again I am intending to take cuttings and in early Autumn I will cut it right back and maybe give it a new lease of life.
