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.
We struggle with Fuschias here in Adelaide, with the intense drought and the high temperatures. Lovely plants. Jacarandas are the plant life of choice en ce moment.
beautiful flower! i wish there were more flowers here in my place!
Very creative photo! That poor flower looks so tired though! LOLHappy WW!
That's beautiful. The frosts are beginning to get to ours now....
I couldn't believe how much of this was planted along the roads in Ireland. Thanks for jogging the memories.
I really like the geometric pattern of this one.
Nice composition. Happy WW! :)
Ok so I need to come and drive the roads of Ireland and see this for myself! Happy WT!

Wow! What a bright pink colour! LOL I agree with tricotine, the flower looks tired.

Thanks everyone. I must admit that they are coming to the end of their season.
What an awesome photo! Love it!
Just a beauty, jams! :)Happy WW!
It looks like a Christmas tree ornament...great shot!
I do like fuchsias, but I like them even better when they're fatter too! Great colour.
It would be neat to go to Ireland and see this!! Thanks for sharing!
beautiful shothappy ww
Awesome flower! It reminds me of a hummingbird flying up or that might be just me having a acid flashback lol! Good WW!
Marvelous shot, Jams! And, lovely subject! I love Fuchsias..they are so beautiful and diverse!Happy WW!
At first I thought it was a bright squid (I'm talking first glance upon loading). So I'm thinking that this flower has a life of it's own to trick me that way. It's beautiful.
I've never seen such a lovely plant! How cool is that?!
I remember seeing those fuchsias growing in the hedgerows of Kerry and Cork. Lovely pic. I hope the fuchsia gall mite doesn't get too strong a grip here - it's a nasty little beggar. Happy WW!
That's an amazing picture.
That's really pretty! I've never seen one before. :) My WW is up!
Wow, what a great picture.
Looks like a painting. Nice work.
Love those deep fuschia colors in amongst the red. I agree with Nap Warden - it does look like a Christmas ornament.
Once again, fantastic shot Jams. Although I did like that Soccer dog intro as well. :)
that's real purdy.
Wow, thats beautiful. It looks like its glowing. I love the colors. Happy WW.
I love fushias too. I noticed some blooming in a yard yesterday that looked just like this one. Happy WW!
It's such a lovely flower. Haven't seen one of it. Thanks for sharing!
Such a vivid color! I didn't know that there's a flower named fuschia until today. Thanks for educating me. Happy WW!
gorgeous shot! interesting flower ... :)happy WWMy WW post
Gorgeous colors!!!! It reminds of some vintage jewelry I have.
So I wonder -- is fuchsia the color named after fuchsia the flower, or is it the other way around?? Happy WW.
THanks for your kind comments. If I havent had the chance to leave a comment on your WW entry I will do so later. Alas work calls!
WOW! Simply GORGEOUS!!!
That's a pretty flower and love the bright color!

Looks as if that flower is electroluminescent- spectacular!
The flower is absolutely lovely!
Gorgweous one. I saw some of these the other day whilst dog walking. Not much longer, though...
Beautiful. Rich red!
I'm so impressed that you can grow these. Beautiful photo of a gorgeous flower.
Wow! That looks like some kind of alien creature. I love fuscia plants. I've killed many.
extremely delicate .. nice.
Another lovely shot. Do you change the background to black or do you set up the shot that way? You inspired me with your flower pic, so I posted one too.
I don't know what it is, but it's a pretty pink :P Happy WW
gorgeous close-up! fuschias are so delicate....
What beautiful vibrant colors. Anothe lovely choice.
Wow, I've never seen anything like that before - very cool photo! Happy WW :)
THanks all for your comments. Vixen I get the dark bckground by stopping down the lens and ensuring that there is as little as possible behind the subject. With the stopped down lens the background is usually rather underexposed. A little tweak to teh lighting levels can usually darken out any bit of background
