My eyes aren't doing so well today but I'm thinking either Fuchsia or Lonicera:

Fuchsia frulens:

Lin, You know? I think you are right!! I knew they looked familiar but they were in full bloom and it was like 40* and threatening SNOW! Who knew they could bloom in that cold temp like that? They were all over in a huge flowerbed.

Yep, the more I look at the photo the more it looks like Fuchsia fulgens. We currently only have one photo in the database so I hope you will add a couple of your pictures:

I doubt it's Fuchsia frulens, there's several similar Fuchsias so it could prove difficult to name. One of the most popular and widely sold triphylla Fuchsias is Thalia, the leaf colour and flower form suggest that.

Yes, Janet. You are right. The leaves were dark in color on the top as shown in this pic. I already filed it under Fuchsia frulens. It hasn't been approved yet. Maybe a Mod could move it to Fuchasa thalia?

Cheryl: I forgot to say, once that photo has been approved you can go to the entry, click on your photo and scroll down to the bottom where you can submit a proposal to move the picture to the correct location/entry.

... ask me how I know that. *Blush* Green Grin!
