The Rose Moon ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk ~

thanks for all of the comments and emails regarding yesterdays' posting ~ 
and the one from 2009…
my appt. went well ~ 
just need a stronger prescription to see what I'm doing ~ is all….
the Good Doctor and I have come to terms and now we seem to have a strange friendship.
{I've come to realize he & I share the same weird sense of humor…how scary.}

Today is Friday the 13th.
and a Full Moon.
a very special day indeed, as these two occurrences don't usually come together that often.
another strange friendship-of-sorts I guess…

Last night's partial-full moon was beautiful ~
a soft, rose-hued glow from above
accompanied by the murmur of cricket-song and dance of the fireflies….


just coming up...


through the trees ~
 the Colonial AMericans called this, the full moon in June, the Rose Moon ~
as this month most all of the roses are in full bloom.

...tonight is a perfect time to make some rosewater for your bath ;)


above the barn

we also had lightening last evening, 
sometimes the sky was bright, and then pitch black…

our farmhouse


the light above the farmhouse that looks like chimney-smoke
... is actually a lightening strike I caught with my camera ~

 This morning we woke to a foggy view of our home-place ~
everything was covered in dew,

...it looks as thought the garden spiders were very busy…
there are tiny webs everywhere:


billowing in the morning breeze


triangular shaped web


only about 3" across


silken threads


the shop garden is in it's wild and wonderful glory ~
being free to produce volunteers and left un-weeded while the shop is closed…
trying to allow my winter-traumatized herbs to regain strength ~ 

...did you lose any lavender or rosemary from the harsh winter we had??


gone wild

 Lazy & Roxy were out chasing rabbits this morning ~
{{they only chase them}}
and they came back sopping wet with dew and exhausted.


good friends

 here are just a couple random snaps for you ~


angel & daylillies


my swing and tree-friend

donkeys grazing

I am still stitching a bunch of tiny little houses on Cupboard Cloth ~
but am having a little difficulty seeing...
My new glasses should be ready next week ~
I'll share snaps of them then.

Enjoy the moon tonight my friends!!

* Blessed be *

  3. Beautiful photos, Lori! Yes, I did lose a rosemary this past winter, but my lavenders are thriving. I might just take your suggestion and make some rosewater...do you have a favorite recipe?

  4. It is always so nice to visit your farm via the web...wish I knew you when I was on the East Coast...so I will have to be content with virtual walking around the farm. My Needle is Sharp arrived...I just love it and can't wait to stitch it.

  5. Great pictures, as always! I was out moon-gazing, too. My gardens are loving this weather and looking wild, too. Heat and humidity are a good reason to cooly stitch inside!
