Hi all 😁 Bright yellow carnations are my entry for Cee’s FOTD.
Hi all 😁 and welcome to December’s project: Things in Scots. This month I am collaborating with my wife, Susan (☜ follow this link to see her post), and we’ll be posting daily — Things in Scots (great title eh? 😂).
The dainty-lion (great name 😁(dandelion)) is today’s Things in Scots. These bright, colourful, wee flooers are also known as: pee-the-bed, pish-the-bed, horse gowan, and what o’clock is it?
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
As we do these posts, we’re learning as well; so we apologise in advance for any mistakes ☺️
If any of you out there have a burning desire to know the Scots word for anything 🤔, please let us know!
Hae a guid day 😁
Hi all 😁 and welcome to today’s Fan Of… Dandelions. I know that to many these are weeds, but who can fail to be a Fan Of… these bright, sunny flowers?
Have great day all 😁
Yesterday I ended up being a squirrel. Thanks to my header image, today I’m a dandelion!
