ABC Wednesday - F



FIRST of all, my apologies for not getting around as many ABC posts as I would have liked to last week. Things went a little awry with my blogging, for various reasons. But I will make extra effort to visit as many other ABC-ers as possible this week.

This first image is of a rose, which I think is of the FLORIBUNDA type, although I could be wrong. I wanted to get a better shot of it than this, but some drunken FOOL shouted abuse at me from the holiday cottage it was outside, and accused me of being a secret agent and a spy who was out to get him. My immediate reaction was to FLEE in FEAR as he sounded quite deranged!



Here's a FROG I met a while ago, as it sat on my FRONT doorstep. My next-door neighbour is FRIGHTENED to death of FROGS, but I'm quite a FAN of the little amphibious ones.



Here's a rather FIERY and FEARSOME sight - my FIRETHORN bush, also known as pyracantha, absolutely laden with berries. It looks pretty, but has the most vicious thorns ever. Although the FIRETHORN looked FABULOUS, the rest of the garden looked rather FRAZZLED. Due to my health problems, I'd rather neglected the place, as you can see by the FIELD bindweed and FERNS romping through my poor FIRETHORN.



Anyway, there are my F pics. Oh, okay, you've heard and seen enough. I guess I'll just F off :). Happy Wednesday!

Very creative! Especially the sign-off. I love the frogs too. We just adopted one that had been abandoned by migrating students. Poor thing is looking a little lonely.

Liza said...

Hi Siani! How are you? I hope all is well with you.

Happy Wednesday. ;)

Folk are people told to report people doing "odd" things like photographing security cameras - maybe the cottager had hidden his in the bushes!

Thank you for your visit!
I am fond of your texts full of "f" and fancy and your photos are ...
"formidables "!
When french children begin to learn English, they teachers tell:them :"don't mistake "Fog" and "Frog"!

Great Fotos Siani, I particularly like the frog.

kml said...

A great batch of F's!

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Great letter for the F!!! I love it:)

Liz said...

I came here earlier to comment on this and got distracted by the previous post!

Nice collection of Fs, especially the old-fashioned floribunda.

Re Fairtrade coffee, I'm not sure what we use in the cafe. It might be Traidcraft but it's more likely to be the co-op's own. They're very good for fairtrade products. I don't like coffee so can't say if it's good or not though!

Ida said...

Beautiful F - post! :) The roses are pretty.

Kate said...

Good collection of "f's"!!

Sharon said...

What beautiful flowers in your "f" post! Great pictures!

Peter M said...

Im sure I know that frog, his name is freddy from Falmouth, sure has travelled a long way, so the earth did not move for you

Katney said...

Your roses are gorgeous. I just started growing some roses last year and found them to be much easier than I had expected.

I have a froggy posted as well. Be sure to check him out.

Frogs are hard to capture, great one.
Thanks for commenting my entry. :)

Paulie said...

Love all your choices but especially the roses. Don't let them bother you -- go back there and take all the photos you want. If they were meant to not be seen, they would have put something over them!

abbagirl74 said...

Love the natural photos. Thanks for stopping by.

Dragonstar said...

That's a Fat frog! Your Firethorn looks Fantastic - I've just planted a tiny golden berried one, hope it survives. Shame about the bindweed, but the Fern sets it off nicely.

Gordon said...

An interesting post; lovely photos. I was challenged when taking a photo of a recycling yard; must have thought I was an industrial spy.

RuneE said...

That was some collection of Fs. I think I'll go for the frog...

I am a bit late in commenting, but better late than never!
