Stockholm’s Indian summer

I think we are having the best autumn we’ve ever had here. The days overall have been sunny and warm for this time of year – today it’s supposed to be 18 degrees C. And when you combine that kind of weather with some of the beautiful autumn flowers and changing leaf colors, things are looking good. I’ve been squeezing in extra walks and bike rides just to enjoy the brittsommar or Indian summer as much as I can. And to store up a little sunshine for the long dark winter ahead, of course.

27C here at the moment in the East of England – but next Thursday our temperatures are set to plummet and we could get our first frosts. As I have usually had one by now I’m not complaining! 18C is a sort of late spring temperature for us. I would prefer that to 27C, it’s hard to work in the garden in this heat. My sprinkler has been going solidly for the past few days.

I love seeing how your weather compares to ours. I run a gardening forum, and it’s been easier for me to be able to understand the horticultural needs of the scottish members from reading up about swedish weather and gardens on blogs.

That’s wonderful Maria. And Jane: I would love your temperatures! And I like your reasoning for reading this blog!
