I for Indian Summer or In-doubtingly climate changes

In June we saw the first signs of summer when our Flammentanz Rose got its first flowers. Later the walls became covered with these beautiful red roses.

This week we have had our second spring in 2009, and the Indian Summer seams to appear.
I is for Indian summer in this week ABC Wednesday.
Or, if the Indian summer is limited for use in October and November as an informal expression given to the period of sunny, warm weather in the northern hemisphere, these rose-blooming photos may also be another evidence that nature has challenges and problems when the climate is changing.

I is for In-doubtingly proof of Climate Changes.

Presently the scientific consensus on climate change is that human activity is very likely the cause for the rapid increase in global average temperatures over the past several decades. Consequently, the debate has largely shifted onto ways to reduce further human impact and to find ways to adapt to change that has already occurred.

Supported!

I couldn't agree more! Each year here in the northwest US, the seasons seem to change and rather dramatically in the 16 years I've lived here. Beautiful flowers, however, regardless of the season and great shots!

We have an Indian summer too alternate with a rainy day here and there. I love your roses. I am worrying about the climate changing too. What can we do about it?
Thank you for your kind comment.

No Indian Summer here. It has been cloudy and rainy for a week.

The real summer arrived late this year in Ontario...about a month ago. It's still here although the nights are quite cool. Usually we don't have an Indian summer until after a frost.

You have beautiful roses.

Summer is still here, although there is a tiny nip in the air at night and in the early morning. But our roses are still blooming and usually we hope for an Indian summer into the middle of October. Your roses are beautiful!

A bit of summer still hangs on here even though the days are getting short. Unusual weather for the last decade or so in this part of the world. Your roses are glorious!

Indian summer will come soon enough in the Northeast US; fortunately, we haven't had our 1st frost yet, which, by definition, is required.

We've always had Indian summers! Our clematis montana is in bloom again, right now - just a few flowers, nothing like the spring display. I like to see it, personally. It's summer's last fling!
