Tonight's Harvest Moon Photo

September's Harvest Moon. Photo by Bill Eyster

This photo was taken this evening by my friend, Bill Eyster, here in Angola, Indiana. Bill is a wonderful photographer and captured the essence of the moon.

I celebrated, of course, with a full moon campfire and poetry reading. It was a spectacular evening watching the moon come up over the trees in my town.

I hope you had the opportunity to share in this lovely moment as well. So, sleep well, my friends and to my man in the moon, keep watch.

Until tomorrow.

Sage Advice

My garden sage.

~"Why should a man die whilst sage grows in his garden?"
   ~"He that would live for aye, Must eat sage in May"
                                                        (English Proverbs)

Working in my garden this past weekend has been such a delight. With the cool September air swirling in, I was able to wear my old sweatshirt and pull the wheelbarrow out of the shed. I mowed and trimmed and weeded and by day's end I built a fire under the almost full moon. It was a lovely way to spend a quiet Sunday. 

My garden sage is perfect this year. Growing garden sage is easy. You must give it a try next spring. Hopefully with a little mulching, this plant will survive our harsh winter and surprise me in the spring. I hope your weekend was full of gardening as well. 

Sage is said to bring tranquility and peace to your home...not a bad thing for a small plant!

Until tomorrow.
