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.
fantastic entry and a wonderful shot!happy ww!mousey
Actually your flowers look good compared to ours. I was on a blog the other day that had a countdown to spring, still pretty far off.Happy WW!
they look like christmas decors!daisy @ http://parenting.i.ph/
I am already tired of winter. Happy WW Tuesday :)
Oh those poor things.
The looked liked exhausted umbrellas after a storm! Beautiful, nonetheless.
ohhh stunning photo I wonder what kind of flower is that?
Ahhh...there's always the hope of Spring. Happy WW!
"Spring is not that far off..." Sigh. I SO need to move away from this frozen country -- we don't start saying that until the end of February!
awww ... poor things. but, like you said, "Spring is not that far off.." :)happy WWMy WW post
awwww..... I hope Spring will come earlier for you. Can't wait to see your flowers in Spring. ^-^
They do look tired.. but yet, still beautiful. Susiej
Such lovely colors.
JAMS:Twas the weeks before Christmas and all through the Infidel house all the creatures were stirring......because it was so freakin HOT!Seriously, 80-85 degrees in December is hot even for Houston. I had to turn on all our fans and the A/C yesterday. :( Couple that with crappy Internet service lately and it makes for a very unhappy holiday thus far.
And those flowers are pretty. They almost look like silk!
Another good shots! Keep it up.My WW is up here.
I agree with daisy, they look like ornaments. Thanks for dropping by.http://mlizcochico.com
Poor flowers :( Happy WW!
I hate that all the work you put into having beautiful flowers is razed by winter. Yes, spring. I love spring. Have a great WW. :)
At least they're not mush! Kind of look like they're sleeping.
Thanks everyone. Bloody hell Ewbl that hot? That is a good summer temperature for London!
They look like well preserved old ladies. Beautiful all the same. Fuscias have to be shaded here.
The Fuschias are long gone around here, mores the pity.Best wishes
Oh no!! We decided to plant some Snapdragons just so we would have color for a couple months...Spring never comes soon enough! (mine's up - another real foto from NY!) Happy WW :)
Oh the poor things! They look so worn out...Happy WW!Come visit my WW posts at Work of the Poetand Answers to the QuestionsAlso Deb has a post at Deb's blog
jams, Of course the Book of Kells is priceless but I found this on eBay: "Irish School, limited prints, Book of KellsIrish School "The Book of Kells: The Symbols of the Four Evangelists; Christi Antem Generatio; Portrait of St. John" Limited edition prints (3) 17.75" x 13.25" (45.09 x 33.66cm.), Trinity College Authentication Stamp; each numbered 937/3000 Estimate : CAD1,000 - CAD1,500"I know this isn't the real book of Kells but authenticated prints (selected pages)sell for the prices you see above (I think that's Canadian dollars?)
Wow that's quite a price Mary. My parents have a nice book with lots of wonderful plates from the Book of kells
It's 80 something degrees here...but our garden is nothing like yours. We could do a lot more with our yard, but sadly I'm a bit lazy when it comes to caring for flowers. www.mamapj.com
oh thats what happened here its really cold sometimes single digit number is the temperature sometimes from 15-19 degrees.
They still look pretty no matter what happens. Have a fun day!http://pelfychen.com/2007/12/11/wordless-wednesday-22-cockles/
Spring is too far away, it's freezing here (although this week here is Norfolk not London).
That is very sad but lets not get rid of winter so quickly...heck, it isnt even here yet:) Soon, they will be in bloom again!! Happy WW.
Awww! I hate it when the freeze comes! Nice shot!http://pixelonepurltwo.wordpress.com
With this crazy weather we're having here, it seems almost like Spring has sprung. :( Great shot. You always have amazing photos. Tisha @ CrAzY Working Mom
They still look nice, even turned to a russet brown.
It does look tired,but still beautiful. Fab shot!
Winter has a way of ruining some of the prettiest things! :(My Wordless Wednesday post is up too! :)
You are an optimist, lol ! Spring not far ! 5 months to wait at least !! Horrible, I go back to my wintersleep.
..... Will it be horrible if I say that I am really enjoying a Sunny December.
You should do a time lapse of your fuschia flowers over the last month or so! Nice one.
I am still seeing much beauty here, and must say that if this is what they look like in winter it must not get very cold there, lol, and they must look awesome in summer. I love Fushias :o) Happy Wordless/Woofless Wednesday.Alice - I Was Born2Cree8http://iwasborn2cree8.blogspot.comReba @ Reba's Runhttp://rebasrun.blogspot.com
Even if your flowers hang their heads they still show a certain sentiment... it's touching in a different way. Great shot, thanks for sharing and have a great day!Tina (Gaining insights)
what a lovely shot! so dramatic against that black background. :)happy WWMy Wanderings ...
I think they still look nice :D
We have had snow here so things aren't even that alive anymore. Happy WW!
they look like squid taken out of the water. okay i'm weird. nice take.i wish we also have winter here.
They look like silk, what a beautiful picture! Happy WW! :)
I have NEVER been able to grow these!
51 comments - my goodness.
I don't have such a problem. I just can't garden, so winter has nothing to kill here!
that's the spirit, jams! spring is NEVER far off! Happy WW:)
Aw, poor old fuchsia. It's a lovely shot, though, despite the flower's imminent demise - the colours are beautiful. Happy WW - and thanks for the Christmas card. I've not even bought mine yet, LOL.
What a sad end for such a beautiful flower.
Oh, sad! But it will be back to pretty in just a few months, I'm guessing, since you can still see flowers to snap pics of. We have had nothing for a couple of months now. We are snow covered.
That looks exotic :)
When we were little kids we called those "poppers", and my mom would get so mad that we would pop them all before they could properly bloom. Happy WWhttp://vixensden.wordpress.com
They still look beautiful in your pic, even with the frost damage.
Wow are those beautiful!Stephaniewww.homeschoolblogger.com/inspired
Yes, spring is not far off...Happy WW.VERB
Thanks everyone.63 James!
love the shot...Mine is up at 4 Seasons Of My LifeM. Hope you can visit me too.
So sad to see that, but it's still a beautiful photo.
Awww, sad garden...
Hm, by reading the title and the date of its posting, I got extremely puzzled, Jams. And even 36 hours later I am.How is possible that we continentals are one hour ahead when on the same time you are one day ahead?:)Update for James: 67
AH that's easy Sean. WW used to be a weekly Wednesday thing, Now it is a daily event. Most people only post on Tuesdays and Wednesdays though..68
:)The Peace of the night, Jams. 69
how sad but your right spring will always come.arielle
