Indian Summer

Summer Days have not yet took their leave.
The most perfect of Autumn days today, blue skies and sunshine galore.
Our rainfall has been little to none for an entire month, many of the trees have already lost their brown leaves prematurely.
There has been much sickness in the household, but hopefully after many trips to the doctor,  and many potions offered, we are beginning to show improvement.
The air conditioner continues to hum......


 




An early American writer described Indian Summer well when he wrote, "The air is perfectly quiescent and all is stillness, as if Nature, after her exertions during the Summer, were now at rest."
      ~ John Bradbury 1817

Here in the northeast, we say we can't have Indian summer without a frost, and we have not had one..........AC is long gone.....my furnace is coming on all the time.......

"There has been much sickness in the household..." Your household, Jo? If so, sorry to hear that. Hope you are all on the mend.
I like that little teapot too.
