Villagers are campaigning to change the name of a new street because it translates into ‘Masturbation Meadow’.

Julia Newsham has launched a petition to change the name of Cae Onan in her home village of Morda, near Oswestry, Shropshire, on the Welsh borders.

The 48-year-old believes council planners meant to call it Cae Onnen which translates as ‘Ash Meadow’ but was shocked when friends told her what this version means.

Umm, not to nitpick, but wouldn’t they be the last snowdrops of spring?

Umm…no…

Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to bloom in springtime.

Ah.  Sorry.

You can tell I know flowers really well.  You’d never guess that my very first job (of about two years) was in a nursery (plants), would you?

Well snowdrops aren’t the sort of flowers ‘grown’ except by snowdrop gardens. They’re wildflowers and just sort of spring up.

Bet most people in nurseries can’t tell a bluebell from a bramble tongue wink

According to the Wikipedia page on them they’re grown from bulbs.  So they’re probably something I came across at some point in time.  And since I was 17-18 years old at the time, not something that left a huge impression on me. wink
