"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns"
– George Eliot
We are enjoying an unusual, prolonged Indian summer. It seems to me, if my memory is correct, that anything we've called "Indian summer" around here has lasted a day or two, not a couple of weeks. We've had sunshine and temps in the 70s and even 80s for quite some time.
Last night, John and I went out for dinner and ate outside on the patio with no jackets or heaters or thermal underwear. Very strange. But a welcome strange.
The picture above was taken (with my phone!) a week ago near Johanna's school. Around here, most of the trees turn yellow or brown so a red tree really stands out. Simply beautiful.
