Hibiscus At Indian Summer
I cannot fib: these bountiful photos were taken in Normal, Illinois when the sun was hot and bright overhead. Red flowers, blossoming boldly, in the heat. We have had a touch of Indian Summer for the past two days, just when we set the clocks back to make it dark at 5pm. Lunacy. I am praying for reasonable outdoor temperatures for later in the week, when my workload is less and my desire to play is more.
Indian summer is an informal expression given to a period of sunny, warm weather in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, typically in late October or early November, after the leaves have turned following an onset of frost but before the first snowfall.
