Hardy fuchsia macro

Yesterday I went outside to bring in all the plants that needed to come in ahead of the arctic weather we’re having right now, and took a few minutes to enjoy the bright sunshine and the last, last flowers blooming.

Red and purple hardy fuchsia flowers still blooming in November.
