This has been a summer unlike any I have ever experienced in Seattle. I think there were around 46 days with temperatures in the 80’s. While that may be normal, or even cool, for most of the country, it is unheard of here. I think the last time this happened was in 1958. Even though we are now in the last half of October, it is still warmer than normal.
I have been using my pellet stove in the mornings but haven’t turned on the house heat yet. Squash, tomatoes and eggplant are still growing in the garden.
Look at the flower I cut this morning! The colors aren’t quite as vibrant as earlier in the year, but it is still beautiful.
