Something is seriously amiss with our climate – it is the middle of October, this is Quebec and gardening at this time of year “should” consist of starting frost protection but yesterday we were  sitting on the deck in hot sunshine after lunch (taken outdoors – unheard of) while admiring the still flowering canna lilies and dahlias. The dahlias were attracting much attention from honey bees etc.

Unsettling, to say the least.
