Fuschia Flowers

I just picked up one of these Fuschia plants for my grandmother for Mother's Day. She has a wonderfully green thumb and loves trying it out on new plants.

The blooms are so vibrant and, well, stunning. I've never seen anything like them before. The blooms start out looking like little hanging paper lanterns. Once opened, silk charmeuse seems to come billowing out from them. Below are shots looking up into them. See what I mean?

Hopefully she likes it as much as I do.
