I just returned from a weekend at our summer house. In many ways it was a great weekend. I wrote, I read, I picked mushrooms with my mother. But it was also a weird weekend. Why?
I saw a blooming wild strawberry, a forget me not flower and a budding rose bush. All of these things are normally viewed as a sign of spring. It has been a warm september, as well as a warm August. To me this is a small, but important sign that climate change isn’t coming soon, it is already here.
Don’t believe me? Take a walk and count how many flowers that are blooming out of season.
