Actually your flowers look good compared to ours. I was on a blog the other day that had a countdown to spring, still pretty far off.

Happy WW!

SandyCarlson said...

The looked liked exhausted umbrellas after a storm! Beautiful, nonetheless.

**"Liza"** said...

ellen b. said...

Ahhh...there's always the hope of Spring. Happy WW!

tammi said...

"Spring is not that far off..." Sigh. I SO need to move away from this frozen country -- we don't start saying that until the end of February!

maiylah said...

JAMS:
Twas the weeks before Christmas and all through the Infidel house all the creatures were stirring......because it was so freakin HOT!

Seriously, 80-85 degrees in December is hot even for Houston. I had to turn on all our fans and the A/C yesterday. :( Couple that with crappy Internet service lately and it makes for a very unhappy holiday thus far.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

And those flowers are pretty. They almost look like silk!

Another good shots! Keep it up.

My WW is up here.

Poor flowers :( Happy WW!

Sandee said...

I hate that all the work you put into having beautiful flowers is razed by winter. Yes, spring. I love spring. Have a great WW. :)

Rene Perez said...

At least they're not mush! Kind of look like they're sleeping.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. Bloody hell Ewbl that hot? That is a good summer temperature for London!

Colin Campbell said...

They look like well preserved old ladies. Beautiful all the same. Fuscias have to be shaded here.

Maddy said...

The Fuschias are long gone around here, mores the pity.
Best wishes

Unknown said...

Oh no!! We decided to plant some Snapdragons just so we would have color for a couple months...Spring never comes soon enough! (mine's up - another real foto from NY!) Happy WW :)

jams, Of course the Book of Kells is priceless but I found this on eBay: "Irish School, limited prints, Book of Kells
Irish School "The Book of Kells: The Symbols of the Four Evangelists; Christi Antem Generatio; Portrait of St. John" Limited edition prints (3) 17.75" x 13.25" (45.09 x 33.66cm.), Trinity College Authentication Stamp; each numbered 937/3000 Estimate : CAD1,000 - CAD1,500"

I know this isn't the real book of Kells but authenticated prints (selected pages)sell for the prices you see above (I think that's Canadian dollars?)

jams o donnell said...

Wow that's quite a price Mary. My parents have a nice book with lots of wonderful plates from the Book of kells

It's 80 something degrees here...but our garden is nothing like yours. We could do a lot more with our yard, but sadly I'm a bit lazy when it comes to caring for flowers.

Spring is too far away, it's freezing here (although this week here is Norfolk not London).

Lori said...

That is very sad but lets not get rid of winter so quickly...heck, it isnt even here yet:) Soon, they will be in bloom again!! Happy WW.

Great shot. You always have amazing photos.

Julia Phillips Smith said...

HartofDixie said...

It does look tired,but still beautiful. Fab shot!

MaR said...

Natalie said...

Winter has a way of ruining some of the prettiest things! :(

My Wordless Wednesday post is up too! :)

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Gattina said...

You are an optimist, lol ! Spring not far ! 5 months to wait at least !! Horrible, I go back to my wintersleep.

Le Butterfly said...

..... Will it be horrible if I say that I am really enjoying a Sunny December.

A Free Man said...

You should do a time lapse of your fuschia flowers over the last month or so! Nice one.

Reba said...

I am still seeing much beauty here, and must say that if this is what they look like in winter it must not get very cold there, lol, and they must look awesome in summer. I love Fushias :o)

Happy Wordless/Woofless Wednesday.

Even if your flowers hang their heads they still show a certain sentiment... it's touching in a different way. Great shot, thanks for sharing and have a great day!

We have had snow here so things aren't even that alive anymore.

Happy WW!

poor man's nicole richie said...

Shelia said...

They look like silk, what a beautiful picture! Happy WW! :)

Dallas Meow said...

I have NEVER been able to grow these!

AGK said...

I don't have such a problem. I just can't garden, so winter has nothing to kill here!

Jos said...

that's the spirit, jams! spring is NEVER far off! Happy WW:)

Siani said...

Aw, poor old fuchsia. It's a lovely shot, though, despite the flower's imminent demise - the colours are beautiful. Happy WW - and thanks for the Christmas card. I've not even bought mine yet, LOL.

Suzy said...

What a sad end for such a beautiful flower.

Qtpies7 said...

Oh, sad! But it will be back to pretty in just a few months, I'm guessing, since you can still see flowers to snap pics of. We have had nothing for a couple of months now. We are snow covered.

Rambler said...

That looks exotic :)

Vixen of Vixensden.com said...

When we were little kids we called those "poppers", and my mom would get so mad that we would pop them all before they could properly bloom.

Happy WW

Mommy Lutchi said...

love the shot...Mine is up at 4 Seasons Of My LifeM. Hope you can visit me too.

Queen of My Domain said...

So sad to see that, but it's still a beautiful photo.

Cynthia said...

Awww, sad garden...

Sean Jeating said...

Hm, by reading the title and the date of its posting, I got extremely puzzled, Jams. And even 36 hours later I am.

How is possible that we continentals are one hour ahead when on the same time you are one day ahead?

:)

Update for James: 67

jams o donnell said...

AH that's easy Sean. WW used to be a weekly Wednesday thing, Now it is a daily event. Most people only post on Tuesdays and Wednesdays though..

The Peace of the night, Jams.
