The warmest of Wednesday welcomes to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.
We are always so pleased that you choose to visit and enter our challenges.
It's Anne here as your hostess this week and today in the UK it is St Swithin's Day.
St Swithin was a saxon bishop of Winchester and legend has it that as he lay on his deathbed he asked to be buried out of doors where he would be trodden on and rained on. For 9 years his wishes were followed but then the monks of Winchester attempted to remove his remains to a splendid shrine inside the cathedral on 15th July 971.
According to legend there was a heavy rain storm during the ceremony and this led to the old wives tale that if it rains on St Swithin's Day it will rain for the next 40 days in succession and a fine 15th July will be followed by 40 days of fine weather.
It's forecast to be fine today and wet tomorrow so I think that proves what an old wives tale it is but I hope you found my little story interesting.
So now onto what you are all really visiting for.
