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.
Beautiful and they remind me of my late grandmother.
I love fuschias. You don't see them very often in Sydney
I'm glad they bring back memories SEAH they are beautiful. Perhaps it is too hot in Sydney
Yes, they have memories for me of a hummingbird garden I tended for seven years.
Ooh lucky you Susan!
I love that they are here from May to the frosts. My favourite flower as they remind me of holidays in Ireland
No miles long hedges here; but there are, of course, quite a few fuchsia pots to be found here and there in Seanhenge.They do have to hibernate in the cellar, though, as they would not survive the winter temperatures.
No miles of hedges here either Sean! but our magellanicas survive well out as do some other hardier varieties. A few need to go into the greenhouse in order to survive. That said a few so called frost tender ones have survived nicely too
