images needed for bead - help!

I have been asked to make a fuscia PC bead -- that is, a large sky-blue bead
with bas relief fuscias on it.  Usually I go to the web for models (for
accuracy & color combos of different flowers), but I'm just not coming up
with much in the way of images of fuscias.  I would have thought there would
be a Fuscia Society like there are rose and iris societies, but either there
aren't or they aren't computer savvy.

If anyone has an image or can direct me to an URL, I'd be most grateful!

Oh, BTW - my pink blossom and my wisteria/silver beads are on display at the
*** Ed showcase here in Champaign/Urbana.  It may not be "gallery" level,
but it's something...!  <g>

(WARNING!  Gentle sarcasm ahead!)

There's this place called a library, and they have these things there called
books.  You can go and spend as much time as you want there, and they even
let you take books home if you promise to bring them back.  They sort the
books according to category and I know for a fact there is a whole category
about flowers -- wild and cultivated.   And get this, it's free!

Kelly, I hope you take this in the lighthearted manner in which I intend it.
:)  We sometimes rely so much on the internet for information that we forget
we might be able to find it elsewhere.

Metaphors be with you,

Great idea if I weren't confined to the house with a bronchial infection!

Now that I know how to spell it correctly (and thanks to those who
emailed--what a tricky word!), I'm up to my virtual armpits in fuchsias!
I knew I was doing something wrong when I couldn't find it in the
dictionary...this is truly a word that should be listed phonetically with a
"see" reference beside it!
