May Flower Challenge • Fabulous Fuchsia

Fuchsia and Fabulous • May Flower Challenge • Day Fifteen
Yes it is spelled correctly! People always misspell this color.
 This morning I was greeted by this lovely, woody shrub with showy flowers called a Rhododendron as I pulled up the driveway. Today I managed to catch its peak. 

The symbolism associated with the" Rhodie" are the words, beware and caution. There are over 1,000 species of rhododendrons. West Virginia and Washington share the Rhododendron as their state flower. Rhododendrons were originally found in Nepal and is the national flower of Nepal.

Fuchsia rhododendrons for day Fifteen of The May Flower Challenge . Each day you can post your flower creation, whether it is a doodle, drawing, photograph, collage or painting. This challenge has been started by  Lori Moon, fellow blogger, talented photographer and jewelry artisan. Play along on a specific day each week or only once - whatever inspires you. Join the challenge, here, it is going to be fun

Make sure to visit the other artists who are participating in the challenge at Lori Moon's websiteI love challenges like this because it helps build reference material for your body of work, it adds to your sketchbook, portfolio, motif library if you are a Surface pattern designers and so on. Make it work for you.

I love this quote by Georgia O'Keeffe. This is the cover of my first gardening journal.
