A Walk in the Garden

~A photo session from our first Adventures at Home series. Written & photographed by our bud Hannah. (Flower close-ups from our bud Oliver.)~

Since Covid-19 came to town there are two places I go to escape: one is my car and the other is my Aunt Laura’s garden. While my car may be filled with gas and music, it lacks the beauty and care that a 30 year old garden has. So today I’ll take you though a visual of what I see when I step inside her pride and joy.

2018 Full Moons – December Elder Moon

December’s Elder Moon is the final full moon of 2018. Thanks for joining us this year as we celebrated the full moons! Sharing this info each month became its own marker of time. Sometimes it felt like, “Didn’t we just have a full moon?” and other times it was, “Wow, seems like that last full moon was forever ago.”

Tuning into one of nature’s recurring cycles can act as a nice rhythm; a pulse. Something that reminds you that yes, time is passing. Are you living your life how you want? Are you practicing being present, or has your mind been in a flurry for the past few weeks? Maybe the changing seasons keep you on pace, maybe it’s the monthly moons. If you need a daily reminder to stay present, try the sunrise 🙂

This month’s moon will appear full on the evening of December 21 – Winter Solstice. So it’s a double whammy! The last full moon, solstice, and the upcoming new year makes this week an energy-filled time for personal reflection and planning changes in your life.

2018 Full Moons – September Vine Moon

This year’s September full moon is the traditional Harvest Moon, being the closest full moon to the Autumn Equinox (September 22). But in our monthly moon series, we’ve borrowed the names from the Celtic Tree calendar, so we’re calling it by another name – the Vine Moon!

Because the moon is lower in the sky during the fall season, it can appear orange or red in color. The moon’s proximity to the horizon also makes it appear larger – a total optical illusion, but awesome nonetheless.

The August full moon goes by many names: Sturgeon Moon, Corn Moon, Wort Moon, Grain Moon, and Hazel Moon. The different names for full moons come from different cultures, histories, philosophies, and places. In our monthly moon series, we’ve borrowed the names from the Celtic Tree calendar.

2018 Full Moons – July

We’re almost half-way between Summer Solstice (June 21) and Autumn Equinox (September 22). This time of year traditionally marks the beginning of harvest, both literally and metaphorically.

July’s full moon is also a total lunar eclipse! It will be the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, coming in just shy of the theoretical limit. Unfortunately it won’t be visible in North America, but pretty much every other place in the world will get to see it!

This month’s full moon is also known as Thunder Moon, since thunderstorms are so frequent during July. Fun fact: some of the stormiest areas in the US can see thunderstorms every single day in July! Top of the list is southern Florida, a few places in New Mexico, and a small region in southeast Arizona. Enjoy Mother Nature’s light show, but stay safe!
