First Quarter Moon

This is the moon from last night. It’s the first quarter and will be full on the 20th. It will also be the spring equinox. That means warm weather is coming! The full moon this month will be the final super moon of 2019. This … Continue readingFirst Quarter Moon

Reminder of Things to Come

Thought I would post this picture from last summer on this windy, chilly, cloudy day. It won’t be too long and we will have warm days with green grass and butterflies.
