Are there no Indian summers in Europe?
Everyone has made such a big deal of a warm period after a killing frost for years --I do have to wonder why since it happens every year. I just take Indian summer as part of Fall?

Oh and I really like Thomas Hood’s poem.
But I have not put my garden to bed yet!

The month of
November at my house is instead;
Lettuce beds
Cabbage heads
Russian kale red
Blue curly kale purebred
Collard greens wide spread
On Bok Choy we are overfed
All severed with buttered cornbread.

Great poem! Maybe Indian summer is a big deal because we all know such days are precious before it gets really cold.

Thanks for the compliment - just a silly rhyme, but they are fun.

I will admit that I do remember specific times over the last fifty years that were warm days we did not expect and they were pleasurable.
