Flower of West Cork
One of the most beautiful sights of West Cork can be appreciated during the summer months. There is nothing more stunning than the blue sky and the azure sea, framed by the orange of the montbretia or the lusturous rich red-pink of the flower of West Cork, the fuschia.
It is around now, the hedges having filled out with the green leaves, that the delicate pendant flower buds make their appearance. At the moment, it is only the hardiest or most sheltered specimen that sports the fully open flowers, the rest remain poised to burst open over the next few weeks.
Just as the fuschia, I too am poised to burst open in a few weeks time, with Cambridge Open Studios. So please do pop in to see me when I am 'in full bloom' during the weekends of 16/17 and 23/24 July, where you will be able to see more of the wonderful things West Cork has to offer.
