Harvest Moon, Hydrangea and Suffragette Garden

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.

Plain-An-Gwarry, Japanese Anemone and Cornus

1    We had a short walk today to clear our heads after yesterday’s day of travel, (left Boston for the airport at 16.00 18th October arriving at our door 17.50 19th Oct)  and went by our town’s small amphitheatre, the Plain-an-Gwarry, which had been freshly mown.
