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.
"I wandered lonely as a cloud,That floats on high o'er vale and hill,When all at once I heard a shout,Get off my feckin' daffodils ..."
Spring has sprung early.
What a gorgeous photo - soft, yet immediate! I love the way the stem recedes, giving the impression that the blossom is standing out from the photo.I recently posted photographs of an orchid show taken with large apertures, and while I got some with that shallow depth of field, I didn't quite get that off-the-page look.Nice job!
It's so beautiful. And we're so far away from this in Toronto. I don't want to be overdramatic. But right now, with a cold wind, and maybe snow tonight, I don't think I'm going to make it to spring....Show me some more, Jams!
Thanks everyone., It is a welcome sight and a clear indication that Spring is on its way!
Delightfully sunny, in contrast to the temperature here.
Sunny but still pretty cold today!
Lovely! Hope to see those here in April.
Ah it was a welcome sight.Just the first to come out but it made me happy
I do so like your flower portraits - it's good to see them all in one place at your other site.I would comment more often, Jams, but I do most of that from my mobile phone and it's not very good friends with Blogger comment pages.
Thanks SE I'm glad you can comment and that you like my website. Much appreciated!
