Fuchsias are thriving in English gardens. As I’m only used to them as pot plants back at home, seeing the big bushes here is a real feast.

You may be wondering about the title of this picture. Interestingly, that’s what the Finnish name of this flower translates as. I can see the resemblance but I must say ‘fuchsia’ sounds so much gentler.

    I love fuchsias – but they don’t grow well here. I don’t think I have ever seen them in such profusion.
