The celebrations start tonight! Public open ritual, Saturday 12 noon at Avebury if anyone wants to come along just show up and say Hi. Then off to Surrey for the main event on Chobham Common.

Bloody hell, is it midsummer already? This year has been a bit of washout so far; maybe your pagan cavortings can empower the sun to try a little harder.

Looks like you're going to have to put your backs into it ...

It's been lovely and sunny so far this year ... actually not sure if lovely is the right word .... worries over crops not getting enough water specially over to the East of the Kingdom, talks of hosepipe bands etc. We've had more rain over here in Wales but it's mostly been at night only had a few days that my walks have been rained off.

Pukon you must work in an office with no window or an area with a peculiar micro climate or something  

True this week has been a bit colder wetter and windier so we may already have had our summer but hey it was a good un

Goodness knows where this year has gone, it seems to be flying by quicker than ever. After the summer solstice it is down hill all the way to winter!

I'm not too far from Avebury, not too far from Stonehenge as well.

Are the Druids allowed to do their thing at Stonehenge these days, it all appears fenced off?

Aren't they allowed in by special permission at solstices?

Lets just say you live in a different part of the country to some of us.

It's been a washed out summer here...
In fact the highest temp we've recorded so far was 19 degrees.

No, I'm not shut away; on the contrary, but in Manchester it's been pretty dreadful. One or two nice days here and there, particularly in April, but as Lexi says, it's been damned chilly. On the whole it's been cold, overcast and drizzly with a stiff breeze for the last two months.

Sorry you two have missed out on the nice weather    I knew it hadn't been quite so dry ooop north but hadn't realized it had actually been chilly! It's been warm here in the day (in fact sometimes too hot to work in the garden) with cold nights ..... until this week that is. I was under the impression that the Midlands and Eastern England had also had the warm weather?

Or there again perhaps it's my pagan rituals that have kept this little bit of the Principality so favoured weather wise?
