Jersey – Naked Ladies

Office du Jerriaisvocabulary

Beating The Bounds bliogue:

amaryllis belladonna otherwise known as Jersey lilies… The connection with South Africa is apt since apparently the Jersey accent is like a South African one. To me it sounded more Australian, but it certainly isn’t anything like a west country burr which for some reason is what I was imagining on the flight over…. The bit about Jèrriais is true though – it is a Jersey patois, although apparently not many people speak it today.

belle-toute-nue = Jersey lily, Amaryllis belladonna
