Mars, Libraries and Flower Baskets

27 Jul

After three months of clear skies, tonight it is raining and cloudy, just the night when I had hoped to see the Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse. If the skies clear, I will post photos tomorrow.  However, last night, I did get a picture of the almost full moon and, if you look very carefully in the bottom left hand corner, Mars, the red planet!

Nearly full Moon and Mars

This came my way earlier today.


Our town is full of beautiful flowering baskets hanging from  lamp posts and brackets above shops.

Beautiful baskets in Redruth, this one outside our favourite coffee shop, Home Ground.

    I hope you are able to catch pictures of the eclipse. Your picture here is lovely. I really liked the message about what a library is a capable of doing – so true! Whether it is in a town or just in your own home 🙂

      Sadly the cloud cover was too thick – never mind, next time – next January………….

    Thanks for pointing out Mars to me . . . otherwise I might have missed it.

    Exactly what I thought. hopefully I can look at it in between clouds. Glad we had some rain though.
