Fuschia Fantasy for Mosaic Monday.

Saturday was a holiday here in France; V.E. Day (Victory In Europe Day 1945) and as a treat we visited The Château des Ravalet in Tourlaville for the Presqu'île en Fleurs flower show.
We certainly enjoyed browsing the exhibits of 40 plus vendors, admiring all the beautiful flowers and plants on display and for sale.
I'll be blogging about this wonderful place more than once I'm sure because the grounds, the chateau, the greenhouses, plantings etc. are outstanding and I think you'll enjoy visiting there with me.

Today, a mosaic of mouthwateringly beautiful fuschias which I'm linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday @ the little red house.

Be sure to pop into the little red house and see all the other great mosaics gathered there today.


  1. I haven't thought of fuschias in years. I always gave one to my mom on mother's day. Then, received them. Such a sweet memory. Thank you. :)

  2. What beautiful images. I love to have a hanging basket of fuchsias in the summertime, but I don't think I've ever had any like these!

  3. Maggie,

    How lovely. I cannot grow them and I have tried. They are one the most exquisite of flowers. Have a wonderful week!

  8. I always grow fuchsias for the summer. I can't imagine my back deck without them.
    Blooms that look like little ballerinas. Love them.

  19. Fuchsias are so lovely - thanks for posting such a beautiful mosaic.

  20. I don't have much luck with fuschias here, humidity and heat??? - but remember my mum's beauties planted in the garden and which grew into huge shrubs.

    Thanks for the nice send off wishes Maggie - Africa beckons and the excitement grows, along with a few little fears!!! Today is a crazy one doing all the last minute odds and ends - hopefully I'll fall asleep tonight knowing I'm ready to roll in the morning!

    See you in June when I'll catch up with you in blogland dear! Take care of yourself.
    Hugs - Mary

  21. Beautiful and so many different ones. I've never tried to grow fuschias but my mothr had them.

  22. How beautiful your flowers are! I've never tried growing fuschia! I think I'll have to see if it can handle the hell-like summers (HOT and humid!)of North Carolina!

    Just 2 more followers and your at 100! Congrats!

  23. I don't think I've ever seen a more lovely flower, Maggie. I wish I still had a yard or patio to grow fuschias! But I'll be happy with your photos!


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
