I LOVE fuchsias! When I lived in California in the Bay Area, I always had them. I adore the full, frilly skirts in Easter Egg pastels or wild-girl carmine and royal purple.

Alas, Texas is not fuchsia friendly. I actually saw a few lovely pots at the garden center the other day. I was tempted for about five seconds -- until I thought about having to water those pots twice a day in the 100° heat.

Painting fuchsias will have to do.
