Make Hay while the sun shines….
While we are luckily sitting in gorgeous warmth here in mid September I’ve been thinking about the phrase “Make Hay while the Sunshines”. The saying has been around for hundreds of years. First appearing in 1546 in John Heywood’s “A dialogue containing the number in effect of all the proverbs in the English tongue.”
As hundreds of years ago, it would take many days for farmers to cut, dry and gather hay. Today, it’s much easier to make hay because of our modern machinery and eh ahem “accurate” weather forecasting.
