Tonight the full moon is called a Blue Moon, but you don’t have to wait for a Blue Moon to see a huge moon. As long as you watch the moon as it rises or sets on the horizon. When it is a full moon, it is said to be a good night to plant and if nothing else, it is lighter by the reflection of the sun on this beautiful, universal, fellow traveller.
The moon down near the horizon can look enormous due to an optical illusion.
Can you get more poetic than the last rays of sun at dusk?
Today I pruned some fruit bushes and stuck the sticks right way up, well into the ground to root. I find small tasks, doing a little bit at a time all helps and just like the hummingbird I am for the planet we all live on and hope you are too. Click on the link below for the story:
Over forty years ago, along the north side of the garden, hubby’s family dumped tree trunks and covering them with rough stone filled sod. Hubby did a lot of the work and it now stands around four feet high and is covered in native plants. This forward thinking now protects the garden from the worst of the north blown winds, rain water run off from the field and some of the noise from the road.
I’ve found gardening with nature🌿connects me happily to the Earth and the other creatures🐾 upon it. Making things for the home, mending♻ crafting and living a frugal life is all part of self kindness. Having lived thus far, I seem to have gleaned some pretty amazing things I’m happy to share. Therefore, I’m writing and will start to 📖 self publish. This top blog post is sticky and therefore will appear above more recent posts.
