I saw this picture of a lovely fushia plant on one of the quilting blogs I visit occasionally. This is hanging outside of her studio. It makes me think of my maternal grandmother. She had a large picture window in her living room where there sat a big pot with a tall white trellis coming out of it and in this pot was the largest fushia plant I've ever seen. I was small, so who knows how tall it actually was, I have memories of it being very tall. And it always seemed to be in bloom...we must have always visited when it was in it's growing season. I always think of Grandma when I see one of these.
I am one of those fortunate people who get to spend their days doing things I love, quilting & teaching piano. I also love to read, give me a good book and I'm in heaven! We have 4 wonderful grown children with the best daughter/son-in-laws! And currently 7 adorable grand kids and a good husband who supports me in what ever hair brain idea I come up with, which is kind of constant! Life is good.
