The party on Saturday night will be outside and a pig has been put on the spit it will take all day to cook.
A light wind blows, and as we drink coffee, we watch some dandelion clocks fly past the pig. The French word for Dandelion is Pissenlit. Now this is strange to me because the English call the flower Dandelion which has its origins in French. Here is a link in French.
And so now I understand that it is the leaf shape that gives the flower its name. A lovely French lady tells me that the name for Dandelion clock is Etoile Vivante, however later MOH tells me that she said Etoile de vent. Well I prefer the first. In the French dictionary the fluffy dandelion clock is aigrettes which is a plume.
