Almost a full moon

An unusually chilly spring evening, crisp clear air, and an almost full moon made for a beautiful walk this evening.  The still leafless trees were silhouetted against the clouds at sunset, with the moon high in the sky.  Breathtaking.

March temperatures here in the Carolinas have been much colder than normal, even though spring flowering is advancing (the sassafras flower buds are about ready to pop & the dogwood buds are swelling).  There are even early azaleas in flower!

But a lovely evening, to be sure.

  1. No color here, only fields still blanketed in snow, BUT we are told there might be Northern Lights tonight. Color!

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
