Magpies, Fuchsia and Dahlia

1    So many Magpies in our neighbours’ tree last evening – in the words of an old English Nursery rhyme, eleven for health, that would be good! Glad there weren’t 13!   You may need to click on the photo to see them all.

One for Sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret never to be told
Eight for a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten a surprise you should be careful not to miss
Eleven for health
Twelve for wealth
Thirteen beware it’s the devil himself.
