In Alaska, we learned that fire weed indicates when summer is over - once all the blooms are finished it means snow will follow in about 3 weeks. I don't know if that's true here in Newfoundland, but it is a very vibrant weed that gets it's name from being one of the first plants to grow following a fire or forest clearing.
