Feels Like August

The air is warm and breezy but the humidity is reminiscent of our autumnal storms.

The vegetation has reach its peak growth and the seeds and fruits are ripening. Harvest comes early this far north.

Fireweed is spectacular--tinting the hillsides a purplish-pink. But their flowering spikes are the fuses of summer--when the flowers are spent, autumn will be here.
