Indian Summer

“The Indian Summer of life should be a little sunny and a little sad, like the season, and infinite in wealth and depth of tone, but never hustled.”
Henry Adams

A 30 degree night, gives way to the first frost of the season, which gives way to rain, which gives way to balmy spring-like warmth, giving way to this Indian Summer.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac a true Indian Summer only happens between St Martin’s day– November 11th to November 20th. If All Saint’s day (November 1st) brings cold, followed by a drastic warm up between St Martin’s day and the 20th of November then we have a true Indian Summer.

This week’s warmth is just a little early for the official Indian Summer, but warm it is…..this butterfly has no idea it’s almost November.

Farewell, thou latter spring; farewell, All-hallown summer!”
Shakespeare’s Henry IV

    I agree, what a breathtaking photograph. As you approach winter here in Australia we are ready to welcome the warmer weather of Summer. What country do you live in? Love Jenna

    • Hi Jenna–I’m here in the US, in Georgia. Our weather is certainly a roller coaster—last weekend it felt like winter, the past couple of days..summer. Keeps everyone sick or battling allergies 🙂
