Fuchsias, Westoe Village, South Shields


I tried my hand with this macro shot of some very small but delightful fuchsias in Westoe Village, South Shields. I’m not very good with gardening or botanical things either, but I think this variety is called Tom Thumb, and they were only about 1 cm across. Perhaps some kind reader could confirm the name.

  1. I am looking at the same fuchsia outside my window – called either Tom Thumb or Mrs Popple – they are lovely and they attract hummingbirds!
