30 days hath September, April, June and November
The rest have 31 days clear and 28 in each leap year.
 ;D

Your poultry can come out on Wed night at one minute to midnight, but they probably won't thank you for it.  In practice they can come out on Thursday morning.  And here in Scotland we can come out on Friday and drive a round a bit too.
I'll be joining the Poultry party  :celebrate: :yippee: :celebrate:


My plants and I are looking forward to having our polytunnel back  :garden:

I would suggest Fleecewife missed a phrase out ... '30 days hath September, April, June and November:  all the rest have 31 excepting February which has 28 days clear and 29 in each leap year'.  :)

( I shall also be keeping the following old rhyme in mind in the next few days:  If the Oak should be out before the Ash, then we shall have a splash, but if the Ash is out before the Oak then we shall have a soak. )

I know, but I went for the shorter version because it already sounded horribly school marmish  ;D

The point is the birds have to wait until tomorrow morning to be let out.

I always note which comes out first, oak or ash, but I've no idea if either is followed by torrential rain or a drought.

I find these sayings best avoided. Just because it rhymes, doesn't make it true. "Cut thistles in May, and they'll grow in a day" - No, they clearly don't. It takes at least three days.

They're also terribly imprecise.  "A bee swarm in may is worth a load of hay" - how big a load?.

Anyway, forty days hath November, March, June and Febtember. If you die before you wake, then the mole your soul will take.

It's been a hard day, and I'm sleep deprived. Can anybody tell?  ;D

At 05.45 I let the girls out to the freedom of the paddock, they went bananas ! louping about like idiots, and dust baths being dug, Oh and sunbathing , insect chasing and overall happiness .
I so glad to see them happy, now to clear up the "prison"
Happy days
