Fuchsia-Flowering Gooseberry

Fuchsia-Flowering Gooseberry

Date: March 15, 2015

These came out very early this year. Temperatures were in the nineties — in February! — so many flowers started to bloom. I’ll be looking for Mariposa Lilies in April!

The flowers are a favorite of the Anna’s Hummingbird.

I’ve been told that you can eat these, but they don’t taste the greatest. Still people have historically made jam out of gooseberries.
