When I woke up Thursday morning it was 22 degrees (Celsius) and felt like 40 by mid afternoon; when I woke up yesterday morning it was 11 degrees and felt like 30 by mid afternoon. This morning it’s 11 degrees again and very windy, going up to just 18 with no humidity. Sunday night into Monday we’re expecting a lot of rain – the first in about three weeks so it will be welcome – the remnants of Hurricane Gordon ramming into another system and slowly chugging across the lower Great Lakes area.
Cold front indeed!
Although the garden is definitely showing signs of slowing down (seed heads everywhere) and getting ready for dormancy, I suspect it’s being speeded along by the excessive heat and lack of rain. Certainly the calendar says two more weeks of summer; the tomatoes haven’t yet given up so why should I?
Here are my Six this week; for more wonderful shots from climactic regions around the world, where winter may be giving way to spring, where it rains on a regular basis, where it never rains, or where there may already have been a first frost, head on over to The Propagator’s site.
