perigee spring

Photobucket

Spring arrives with a perigee moon this year. They tell me it is the largest full moon we have had in the last 18 years. Supermoon. The full moon of March has other names...Sap Moon, Worm Moon, Crow Moon... to name a few.

I have finished my spin-to-knit-along cowl...details here...

...and even though the calendar says it is spring, there is still some snow in the forecast later this week.

The cowl will be cozy around my neck as I begin to rake the garden and prune the fruit trees and berry bushes. There are promises to uncover, the buds are starting to show, and another season turns.

Unfortunately it has been so cloudy here we didn't get to see the big full moon. I so wanted to. The cowl looks like a spring garden in these colors. Happy Spring.

I was outside raking a bit yesterday. Wow...this winter did make a mess!

That moon was gorgeous on Saturday night.

Please tell me you forced that bud.

The moon was gorgeous, if not the biggest, certainly one of the brightest!

Beautiful cowl!
Nice big moon too but unfortunately lit up the woods too much here and woke up the bears ;)

The cowl looks so snuggly. I really should make one of those. Love the moon photo!

The moon was so bright last Saturday night that I could knit by it! Now I know why it was so bright!

Your cowl looks soooo soft!

Lørdag 19. marts, kl. 19:10 we had the coolest moon. It looked like an orange because it was so close to earth. A sight you never forget. Your cowl is so cool.
