The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Warming up here, too -- after a few nights of -25, -30, it's finally a balmy -15! Wanna trade gardens, Jams? The ice flowers on our toilet window for that camelia!
Hmm Peteris, I think someone is getting a better deal here... I wonder who!
The bottom one looks similar to a cherry tree blossom. Smart plan not to plant any tulips, jams. Who would want an open invitation for a zombified Tiny Tim to come tiptoeing through them whenever the urge strikes? And what if he brings along the horror of all horrors with him..............the ukulele?
I think it is probably cherry blossom or something similar.. Ah our tulips have died off sadly. I was planning on planting some abut never got around to it.. A zombie tiny tim? Now that IS a great reason not to plant them!
Can winter be far behind? (vicious smile)
I hope it is now behind us for another year. It's nice to see that the days are getting longer. THe one downside ofanother mild winter is an explosion of rats and mice.. Our cats have offed a few rat pups. I daresay they will have rather more shortly
