Candy Pink

The Fuschia Candy Pink in flower finally after a year of waiting.I bought some plug plants last year, but most succumbed to the damp in the old flat.
One plant survived and this spring I took several cuttings and placed them around the parent plant.
It is thriving now inside the kitchen in a white ceramic pot. There are masses of flower buds hanging down.
They are delicate like pink ballet dancers, not like the double bloomed Fuschias like Winston Churchill and Blackie...
My patience has been rewarded, and with luck it will grow even bigger and have more flowers next year.
I will try to overwinter the Fuschias in the cold frame.That is in the cellar waiting for the first frosts of the winter.
