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've never seen this tree/plant before. Looks interesting. Looks like it's about to bloom.

What beautiful new leaves. Peonies are gorgeous flowers. I hope you'll be back with the blossom.
Very unusual looking plant ! Hope you put up pics of the blooms ! Would love to see them :)
Spring has sprung! Happy WW Tuesday :)
You say Paeony, I say Peony!Ahhh, sounds like another hit song for our imaginary off-off-off Broadway musical, jams.
Putting on the trying to get blood from a rock in the Terrorism that is Capitalism.
I love peonies. Can't wait to see mine come alive again.
Interesting looking tree - I don't think I've seen it before.
It kinda looks like old hands...Happy WW. Great shot:)
That's a lovely tree, jams! Peonies here get big black ants on them just before they bloom, ugh!
Never seen this before. It's a tree?
I hope you post pictures of it when it grows bigger - this one is kind of hard to tell what I'm looking at! 8-)
I love the first signs of spring :-)Do I see a snowflake or two as well?
I can hardly wait to have buds to take pictures of!!
I so love spring and all the wonders it brings. Have a great WW Jams. :)
Undoubtedly beautiful! Love it. Happy WW!
Interesting. And very beautiful!Happy WW!
I love peonies. I don't think I've ever seen a tree peony. I hope in the future you show it in full bloom :)
I did not know tree peonies existed it is lovely w/ expectation of more
That's wonderful that they're coming back to life! Going to be beautiful flowers when they bloom this summer.
Thanks everyone for visiting
I've never seen this before. I have a black thumb. I shouldn't be around any plant. LOLOLHave a great WW and thanks for stopping by!
That's really pretty.
That is a weird looking plant.Happy WW!
That's a really interesting looking plant. Good job on the photo.
Quite unlike any peony that I've ever seen, though it probably has a bit more growing to do, what do the flowers look like?
Very nice. I would like to see it in full bloom. Maybe next week?Are you using a black backdrop or just a fill flash?
so gorgeous!happy WW!
wonderful! .. and the drops add something more to the shot! :)
Wow - your season is way ahead of ours. We still have snow in shady corners of the backyard. I love the almost-unfurled quality to your photo.
Nice WW. Thanks for stopping by to see my lame first attempt. Next time I'll try to make it better...or "more Wordless"...or maybe both (probably not).-Steve D. (lazycomic.blogspot.com)
I don't know that I've ever seen one of these either. I bet it will be beautiful, though.
Beautiful picture! They're called 'peonias' in my language (Spanish).Happy WW!My post: "Dressed to kill" (It'll be up in about 1.5 hours)
Yes but there are words, Jams. :)

i've always loved peonies. they bring up warm memories of my grandmother, who loved them also and had many in her backyard.
Very nice. I didn't realize it was a peony!
Very interesting, will you be photographing it once it is fully awake?

It is so pretty. You'll be sure to post a photo when it is in bloom? I don't think I've ever seen one of these.
Great capture;-))With a better camera it would have been superb.
Great shot...Love the water drops!
THanks. Tor I have a Nikon D200 and a specialist macro lens and ring flash.I did have the ISO setting high which possibly afected the image quality slightly
