St Swithin's day is on Sunday (thank you Roger)
As well as the 40 days of rain saying, 'St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain For forty days it will remain St. Swithin's day if thou be fair For forty days 'twill rain nae mair.'
I seem to remember something about making your Dandelion wine before St Swithin's day, otherwise............................. ah well I haven't collected my Dandelion flowers.
But I do put salt over my shoulder, and I avoid walking under ladders, superstitions, folklore, old wives tails, kissing frogs or is it toads!!
in celebration of wind and the various shades of grey
