Saint Swithun’s Day – 15th July

Will it?  Or won’t it?  Summer stay with us that is!  I am hopeful, today is warm, bright, sunny breaks and most importantly dry … but it is only 11am!  Legend / folk lore has it that if it rains today it will rain for 40 days – please, please, no!  The year  I got married, 2003, 15th July was a dry, sunny day and the weather right through to September was scorchio – I am optimistic 2009 may be the same, join me and cross your fingers!   

St Swithun’s day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St Swithun’s day if thou be fair
For forty days ’twill rain na mair

 

Back to business for me with one eye on the sky!
