Hello there, I hope you enjoyed yesterdays quiz. Many thanks to all those who read the post and special thanks to those who took time to comment.

Answer : Carnation

3. St Swithin's Day falls on which date every year? And if it rains on St. Swithin's Day, for how many more days will it continually rain?

Answer : 15th of July. 40 days (Note: St Swithin was Bishop of Winchester in the 9th century)

4. Neil Armstrong became the first man to step onto the moon on July 21, in which year?

Answer : 1969

5. Which zodiac sign for the month of July ends on July 22? And which sign starts from July 23 onwards?

Answer : Cancer (until July 22). And Leo (July 23 onwards).

6. Which gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum, and which symbolizes contentment, is the birthstone of July?

Answer : Ruby

7. True or false. On average, July is the hottest month of the year in the UK?

Answer : True

How did you do? Before I researched the answers I knew six, although one answer was a guess 😊

... and now on to a tasty recipe suggestion, which you may wish to try.

Marigold was the flower I was thinking. Rain 40 days first thought, but changed to 3 because 40 is a lot of rain. lol
Fun quiz

Yay! I'm a Leo and I know my birthstone is a ruby. But gosh! I don't have any jewelry with a ruby.

#4 I knew. Ingo was 4, his parents dragged him out of bed in the middle of the night to watch it live. He thought it was a comic, a movie, not real and just wanted to sleep.
Oh, boy!!!

I got two correct, the ones I knew for sure (numbers 4 and 5). I had read that August is named for Augustus Caesar, but didn't know July was named for Julius Caesar. I was wrong about the gemstone, too. This one was definitely harder than most months. BTW, the cheesecake from yesterday looks wonderful.

Hello Jan, Thank you for the answers to July Quiz Plus and a recipe for low carb vanilla ice-cream. 😊 I surely did not know all 7 answers, so, once again, I’ve learned from my visit to The Low Carb Diabetic. Interesting that July is the hottest month of the year in the UK. I need to do some research to see if that is true for Seattle. I am pretty sure it is either July or August. The ice-cream sounds delicious, and, what perfect timing to offer that up! 😊 Thank you, as always, for your kind comments on my blog. Wishing you and Eddie a fine weekend and week ahead. John

I didn't participate in the quiz, and perhaps that's a good thing--I only really knew three answers! 😅

I hope you're having a nice weekend.
