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.
how beautiful, it looks like one of those plants that eat insects.have a great weekend.
absolutely marvelous. it looks as if it's made out of sugar...
I don't think it's real!Fabulous.
Thanks! Calum it is a very real flower
Is it just me, or is that a very sexy flower??
What a unique and beautiful flower. Great idea for the theme.
It's not just Knatolee. This is a very sexy flower, indeed. :)
Haha a bit of plant porn eh?
If you do not watch it with this plant porn you will get a warning on your site like poor Sonia.
Commonly known as Impala Lilies, and of course they aren't foreign here.
What a pretty plant! Very interesting looking and looks foreign to me.Happy weekend.
It looks as if it is about to swallow me up. But definitely interesting.Happy weekend to you Jams
Love the textures :-) I think I am safe :-)
That plant looks very exotic... and beautiful but scary! :O
Wow, that is one awesome flower. Amazed you can grow something so tropical looking in the UK. Great photo of it too. Happy weekend!
What a beautiful flower. Looks very exotic to me. Great take on this theme!
Yes it looks interesting but pretty. Happy hunting...Mine is up also.
What a gorgeous flower. I've never seen or heard of this.
I have been a foreign flower for many years. I was surprised to note a thistle down the road recently.Have a nice non foreign weekend.
cool and odd ly fascinating very unique( I finished working my post after you visited:) Thanks
Oooo! Gorgeous flower! Sadly, few blooms are allowed into our home - they have to fall into the not-poisonous-to-cats category.
What a beautiful bloom. And it is even foreign for me :)
What an amazing flower, it looks like glass. Thanks for showing this amazing flower.
You do have some marvellous plants in your garden.
what a lovely flower! :)happy weekend!
Thanks everyone! Glad you like the phygelius
Beautiful flower, and very clever take on this theme. Not all "foreign" plants are desirable. But this one is very pretty.My solution is conventional and simple.Happy Weekend!Anna
I just have to add my WOW! Very beautiful, lucky you to have this in your yard...
A yawning flower ! Beautiful, but really it made me yawn, lol ! I was already one week ahead with the theme !
Again this is one of those themes that can easily take so many directions. I'd have never thought of that. Beautiful and perfect for the theme.Thanks for dropping by my blog and I hope I see you again soon.
it sure looks like a pitcher plant..it's beautiful! have a nice weekend!
That is very beautiful :)
WOW! Beautiful! Great choice for the theme. My Photo Hunters is up. I hope you have some time to take a peek. Happy weekend!
That is a great shot of Phygelius. And perfect interpretation of this week's theme. It is a pretty foreign looking flower but great for adding color.
I've never seen a flower quite like that before! It looks like a cross between an orchid and a pitcher plant!My photo hunt post:http://bonggamom.blogspot.com/2010/03/foreign.html
Beautiful. It looks like candy.
That thing looks scary.
Beautifully exotic. A gaping mouth! I wouldn't put my finger near it...
Beautiful and mysterious!!Sniffie and the Florida Furkids
Gorgeous capture...eerie plant!
wow...very pretty! happy weekend! :)
Exotic and erotic
What an interesting flower!I played too :)
So beautiful! I've never seen that flower before.
That's a real beauty. I have a streptocarpus that came from Africa to my uncle's home in Durham and from there to my mother in Ontario and then made its way to me. Life is strange.
Nice take on the theme of foreign. We just came from a site where "foreign" plants were probably less welcome than those in your garden.
Very interesting and beautiful flower. Enjoy your weekend!
Wow, that's the most interesting flower I have seen in a long time!
