SECOND ENTRY IN MY HANDMADE SKETCHBOOK
As you can see, a most unusual fuchsia. It has grown prolifically in a half barrel on the steps above my little pond, together with lemon nasturtiums called Banana Split. The blooms grow all along the length of each stem - some of which here in my sketch have died and fallen off leaving the 'seedhead'.
Just thought you might like to see the whole plant growing - so've popped out into the garden to take a photo. The one Ive sketched is at the bottom and there are two further types of fuchsia higher up in the barrel.
The funny triangle of stone on the bottom left is the wing of an angel statue.
