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.
It is now 75 degrees in the North Coutry. I am off to the VT Bayou in search of oversized turtles and Wood Ducks. That is a Duck species, not hunting decoys.
It about the same temperature here today - not good weather for the London Marathon.It's a beautiful duck. Ornithology or hunting? I hope the former
JamsI would never hunt wood ducks. Duck season is in the fall and way off.Most NYC/NJ residents have a secretfantasy of eating the hated Canada Goose. Canada Geese are everywhere in NYC and make many parks a mess.Earl just jumps in the car on his own. He stays wherever the freezerchest is with the food. I could be in the swamp for hours and as soon as I open the chest out comes Earl looking for food. The wood duck is very hard to findbut then again one seldom sees Moose. The moose also live in the swamp and are massive but you wantto keep a healthy distance.There are Great Blue and Night Herons all over the place.
Geraniums in the States aren't nearly this lovely. I know there's different varieties but the most prevalent around Houston are the red roundish petals clumped into one big blossom at the end of the stem.
We get quite a few geese, especially at the local nature reserve.. We dont have an waful lot of open space nearby so any we have is to be treasured!It soudns wonderful to be there BeakerkinThe versocilor is a pretty little one. I love it. The red ones strictly speaking are pelargoniums by soudsn of it. Nice enough but teh species perennials are much nicer in my view
