Yarrow, in the eastern counties of England, is termed Yarroway, and there is a curious mode of divination with its serrated leaf. The inside of the nose is tickled by the leaf while the following lines are spoken. If the operation causes the nose to bleed, it is a certain omen of success:

Yarroway, Yarroway, bear a white blow,
If my love love me, my nose will bleed now.”
