WWP NAILS ONE



World's Worst Photographer finally gets one right. This is my beautiful waterlily camellia which I care for with great diligence, in other words, it takes water from next door's garden, gets the sun for free and sometimes I remember to feed it.

After reading the previous post I thought I'd better get the rake and find 'Moby Dick' under the bed. Bad move, it means going up the side of the house that I usually ignore. I'm sure I was only up there a few months ago, well maybe last summer but when did the hanging gardens of Babylon start sprouting in the spouting? This means a trip up the ladder to check things out (where are you Davo, when I need you) but I didn't make it past the first three steps and I needed two more for a squizz. The flesh was willing but the spirit was weak, it looked a long way to the ground and I didn't have a safety net. I intend to ignore it. The black birds are foraging for food all along there which means there's crawlers and I can't have my black birds going hungry.

The rake worked, one copy of Moby Dick, one synchrotron notebook, one earring I thought I'd lost forever, two empty pill bottles (junkie) and a covey of dust bunnies. Under the bed is clean, I feel so righteous.

I was thinking of your roof exploits the whole time trying to climb that ladder. I hate not being able to do these things for myself.

Never seen a flower like that. Most interesting.

I must argue that I am the WWP, but the flower is a beauty, and in such an elegant setting too.

Link said...

My thoughts too Brownie, she's in illustrious company, not sure who shows up who.

If you're talking about the background, they're prints of 18th Century beauties. I hate to think what they would cost to have framed now with GST but back in the good days, not a lot.

What an accomplished woman is our CW. Is there no end to what she can achieve? Have you thought about sending this photograph to the Queen. Royal portraits pay well I believe!
