Haiku Astonishment

Wondrous flowers thrive
Hanging on a mountain porch
Can’t believe they’re real

Mr. E and I went to Durango last week and went up to Silverton

to hear accomplished pianist, Lacy Black

 at the Grand Imperial Hotel.

We had lunch at Grumpy’s Bar , then wandered around a bit

finding some great patinas

and checking out the train

only to find these incredible flowers growing in a hanging basket on Main Street.
I was totally astonished to find that they were alive and very real!

  1. The fuschias are mag. I had some several years ago. The yard comes to life with these flowers. Love that truck. What a beauty.

  2. All of these photos are so evocative. The fuschias ARE amazing.. They are different from ones that I have seen before – they are like double fuschia…

  3. i grew up as a child playing with fuschias, twirling a blossom from its long stem between my fingers and “seeing” ballerinas dance.

  11. Durango is one of my favourite small cities. Too bad it costs so darn much to live there. Oh, well, at least most of what you saw was free–and a feast for the eyes!
