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.
That is a very good picture...did you need a special lense to get that picture?
First time I'm seeing the Cymbalaria muralis. Thanks for sharing Jams! :)
6mm flower?!Capturing this in ur lens must have been a real challenge.Great shot!
What a strange shape the flowers of ivy-leaved toadflax. From some angles they look like the heads of cartoon rabbits!What's up, Doc?
lovely shot! that little flower really stands out :D
Haha Roger. I never thought of that. THanks everyone. I used a macro lens for this shot. Even then I had to crop and resize the image slightly.
It seems to be looking right at us! What a beautiful flower. Is it related to the begonia?
Pretty flower! Happy WW :)
What a beautiful flower Jams.
happy WW!! ;) Nice shot.. (and beautiful subject too!! )
Hi JamsI too was wondering like Sandy if it is related to the begonia ..the leaves seem so similar. Great shot !
Thanks everyone. I don;t think it's a relative of the begonia. I could be wrong though

It looks like a diamond in the rough...with 2 eyes that look like eggs...lol. Great shot. Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)
such an interesting name! wonderful macro shot! :)
I didn't see the face of a cartoon rabbit but I did think I saw Elsie the Cow. However, it is so wee and precious, so vivid and fragile. Lovely.
sweet pretty color and shape
This is such a great shot! I love the colors. Thanks for stopping by to see my book worms. I wish I had more time to read myself. Happy WW!
That's an absolutely fantastic picture. It must have been difficult to take!Here is my post for today, and here is my "Where were you" game. Do you want to play?
Such a pretty little flower should have a nicer name than "toadflax..."Sounds like a toad with dandruff or something!~~~Blessings~~~

That is so pretty! And itty bitty. The leaves almost look like those of a succulent.
Lovely, Jams. Where do you find this stuff? I also just read your post on ancient trees, very interesting!
i'm just thinking, was it named after a toad? because their shape is similar. if it is, then i would not have problems kissing toads.c",) Morning Sniffles

Pretty flower. Ugly name.
I'm not sure why it was called toadflax. There probably was a reason
