What is ‘Indian Summer’?
Indian summer is a weather phenomenon characterized by a period of unseasonably warm, dry, and sunny spells that occurs during the autumn months, typically after the first frost of the season. The term "Indian summer" has been in use for centuries, although its exact origin is a subject of some debate. It is generally thought to have been coined by early European settlers in North America who noticed these warm sparks in the late fall.
"As an inspiration, Indian summer is about a sense of nostalgia, and the beauty of nature's cycles."
Indian summers are celebrated for offering people a chance to enjoy the Outdoors in comfortable weather, during what is typically considered a transitional period between summer and winter. This period of warmth and clear skies often comes as a delightful surprise, as it occurs after the official summer season has ended and when one might expect cooler temperatures associated with the fall season. These warm spells can also have cultural and symbolic significance, often being associated with a sense of nostalgia and the beauty of nature's resilience in the face of changing seasons.
