When elm leaves are as big as a shilling, Plant kidney beans, if to plant 'em you're willing; When elm leaves are as big as a penny, You must plant kidney beans, if you mean to have any.

Last 7 Days

    A cold May is kindly, And fills the barn finely.

    He who sows in May, gets little that way.

    A cold May and a windyMakes a barn full and findy.

    (Findy means "plentiful" or "substantial.")

    Wood that burns in winter pops more before snow.

    A piece of kelp or seaweed hung up will become damn previous to rain.

    When a pipe or perfume smells more powerful than usual, rain is on the way.

    Dream of the Sun or sunrise and new adventures await you. Goodwill is yours, energy is coming your way, and fulfillment is in store.
