Indian summer and its tales

A man fans himself to beat the heat

The other thing I find absolutely fascinating about the summer here, and the long wait for the rains, is the agricultural aspect to it. In Europe, it rains, or its cold, or it’s sunny and all we think about is the impact on our urban lives. Will the trains work? (Not when there are leaves on the line, is the answer for England…) Will the roads be too icy to drive? We are all far too removed from the countryside to reflect on whether the rain or the sun is good/bad for the crops.
