St Swithin was an Anglo-Saxon Bishop of Winchester.
According to tradition if it rained on his feast day, the 15th July, it would rain for the next 40 days.
I don't remember if it was raining on the 15 july but it has rained on this 'Bishop' today!
Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff.'
What sort of St Swithin weather have you been enjoying?
