Harvest Moon, Hydrangea and Suffragette Garden

06 Oct

The Harvest Moon was glorious last night. I had thought it was the Hunter’s Moon but then I discovered this:

This year’s autumnal equinox came on September 22nd, making October 5th the Harvest moon because it is the closest full moon in the calendar.While October is usually reserved for the Hunter’s moon, this year we got a late Harvest moon.The Hunter’s moon will take place on November 3.

I love how Hydrangeas are just as lovely as they start to fade.

Our suffragette Garden has purple and white at the same time for a day or two! Spring is its best season but the Japanese Anemones are just still in flower as theTibouchina Urvilleana have just started to bloom.

    Harvest Moon -given the crazy going on’s in this old world, it was this years o’l friend the Harvest Moon which seemed to soften the blunt trauma. The harvest moon and flowers blooming, all signs of hope I’d say.

    Now am off to hum the day away to this tune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MtEsrcTTs thanks to you.

      Thank you for the music! 🙂
      It is seeming more and more important to find the beauty in the small things when much of our world is experiencing the bad stuff.
      All the best to you.

    My sister-in-law saw the Harvest Moon at the beach last night, but I didn’t remember that it’s the Harvest Moon because it’s closest to the autumnal equinox.
