Only a staff of ten? That's it?! I would have expected much more.
Wow. Really? 10? Wow.
I love tea trees too--and yes, you're right on fuschia--I have one on my front porch. Just gorgeous.
My friend "C" e-mailed me with some historical information:"The fuchsia was named for a German botanist Leonhard Fuchs, who hybridized or discovered it. Fuchs is German for fox. So you can remember fuchs-ia. Why it's pronounced fyoo-shee-a I have no idea."I think we struggle with the correct pronunciation of "Fuchs." In The Thing, the character's name was pronounced Fewks. Fewks-ee-a just sounds worse than fyoo-shee-a.
So THAT's what fuschia looks like! Had no idea!!Those flowers are beautiful...what an incredible place!I want those callas and yellow tulips in my gardern NOW!!
