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.
Whatever happened to the seasons?A happy 2008 to you too Jams :-)
That's beautiful! God bless you in the new year!
wow, how beautiful!! Have a great New Year, Jams.
I can't believe this flower was blooming like that on Christmas!
This hebe is so pretty. I did a fifteen minute search here and I don't think they grow many in Texas. We do have some climate similar to New Zealand.I also like your flower and insect pictures. I have a June bug collection, about half are really bugs.One bug no one knew what is was, but my readers aren't very expert in bug areas,http://jimmiehov3.blogspot.com/2006/10/its-june-bug-no-its-red-october-bug.htmlThe June Bug Collection:http://jimmiehov3.blogspot.com/2006_10_01_jimmiehov3_archive.html..Some day you might take a peek.Happy WW/WT! Happy New Year!..
Lovely Hebe. Happy WW.

Beautiful. My orchid bloomed over Christmas. It was wonderful. Have a great WW and a very Happy New Year. :)

Happy New Year, Jams, from an O'Donnell in Florida.

Lovely! I love the purple ones :)Happy New Year, Mr. O'Donnell!
Wow ! beautiful, a nice Christmas gift !

That's beautiful. One of my rose bushes has flowered right through the winter, and still has a few flowers and lots of buds, and one Azalea has just started flowering. Crazy seasons!!
