Trafalgar Square’s fountains are not to be missed at night – February 2016

#c364c5 color imageA colourful note: fuchsia is a purplish-pink colour named after the plant of the same name.  The plant was discovered in the late 17th century and was named in honour of a famous German botanist, Leonhard Fuchs (1501–66).
The first recorded use of fuchsia as a colour name in English was in 1892 and it became a Crayola crayon in 1990.
