Ne'er cast a *clout...

...'til (the) may is out...
  • Not 'May' in my view - 'may'
  • The may = the hawthorn blossom
  • So - stick to your warmer togs until you see the hawthorn (may) blossom in bloom
  • NOT necessarily keep muffled up until 1st June
  • *Old English for clothing/cloth/clothes
That is my interpretation and I'm sticking to it. It was jolly warm and sunny when I took this photo so that proves it. Ha! But at school a friend's mother kept her in winter uniform until June regardless of the weather. I'd get into summer dresses as soon as I could.
