Waning Crescent Moon

We have watched the moon this past week.

The waning crescent moon has been a
 beautiful site in the early morning.

The Buckeyes are making up for lost time.
I have six at one time feeding in the milkweed.

Monarchs are also feeding in the milkweed.

Our Chippy like nuts.
I put a small bowl filled with mixed nuts out for him.

It has been an incredible year for Tiger Swallowtails.

The Female Tiger in her black form is the biggest butterfly in my gardens this year.
She is bigger than the Giants!
Hurricane Irene has landed on the East Coast.
I send blessings.

Our Autumn vegetable garden has sprouted.

We have received 4.58" of rain this past week.
The butterflies visit between showers.
We harvested our first brussel sprouts.

Second nesting is finished.

First Week of August

August came in hot and humid.

The Jewel Wing Waxing Crescent Moon
 traveled the skies.

An inch of rain gave some relief.

The hottest day of the year on the 2nd.
The National Weather Center reported 109 F.

I have begun studying Celtic Astrology.
The 13 sign Lunar Zodiac fits my way of thinking.
I shall be studying the trees in my area.
