Weissenhaus Mansion Pumpkins

Thanks again to the Graf for letting us take so many photos. Sadly, they sold the mansion, reportedly because the children were not prepared to take over. More than likely a very hard decision to make. His plans to reinstate the historic rose gardens, were probably no longer undertaken

Top Superstitions & Old Farmers Tales
If you know any old weather related sayings, superstitions, poems, stories or anything interesting or funny, please let us know
  • Dirty days hath September
    April June and November
    From January up to May
    The rain it raineth every day
    All the rest have thirty-one
    Without a blessed gleam of sun
    And if any of them had two-and-thirty
    They´d be just as wet and twice as dirty

  • If the cat eats hay, then wait because on the next day, it will rain like a dog´s day!
  • Mares tales, storms and gales. Mackerel sky, not 24 hours dry

  • Wind in the East - the Fish bite the least
    Wind in the West - the Fish bite the best

  • Rain on Easter Sunday, it will rain the next 7 Sundays.

  • Fog goes a hoppin´, rain comes a droppin´
    Fog in January makes a wet Spring
    Feb fog means a frost in May
    Ash Wednesday wind continues in Lent
    Cold is the night, when stars shine bright.
    If smoke goes up - clear, smoke comes down - moisture on the way

  • If you are in the east, then westerly brings the best.
    If you are in the west, easterly is the feast.

  • Mackeral sky, mackeral sky - never long wet, never long dry.
    The smooth days of January will be paid for in February and March!

  • If swans fly toward the wind, it is certain indication of a hurricane within 24 hours

  • If cocks crow during a downpour, it will be fine before night

  • Send us your contributions today
  • The louder the frog, the more the rain.

  • When the swallow´s nest is high, summer is dry
    When the swallow´s nest is low, you can safely reap and sow

  • No weather is ill, if the wind be still

  • Rain before seven, fine before eleven

  • A cow with its tail to the West makes the weather best,
    A cow with its tail to the East makes the weather least

  • When the wind is blowing in the North
    No fisherman should set forth,
    When the wind is blowing in the East,
    ´Tis not fit for man nor beast,
    When the wind is blowing in the South
    It brings the food over the fish´s mouth,
    When the wind is blowing in the West,
    That is when the fishing´s best!

  • The last Sunday in the month indicates
    the weather of the next month.

  • When circle around the moon t´will rain

  • If the leaves are turning up, a storm is brewing!

  • When pigs carry straw to their sties,
    bad weather may be expected

  • When Windows won´t open,
    And the salt clogs the shaker,
    The weather will favour
    The umbrella maker!
    If the moon shows a silver shield,
    Be not afraid to reap the field,
    But if she rises haloed round,
    Soon well tread on deluged ground
