Under the Strawberry Moon—-Monday, April 10, 2017

We started work on the cement ditches.  Picking up the stacked tubes and placing them in every furrow, cleaning the ditches of trash and mud, and building the dams.  Later on this morning we will start water.  It will be a jumble of rushed minutes to stay ahead of the rushing, gurgling, bubbling, water—-crazy minutes to get the syphon tubes started and to make sure the water doesn’t run over the sides to ruin the farm ground.

In first light there was a peaceful little star, shining forth so bright I had to take a photo

While at the very same time that gorgeous April Moon was swiftly descending in the deep azure sky.

 

The trees were just coming to life with the sound of birds…

The sky in the east burning was off, as the setting silvered moon light splashed peacefully on our on the farm, striping the ground with a drifting dust of white glitter.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

  1. That was a “little” star?!! 😉 Cool! The Strawberry moon is beautiful, we had a lovely big Full Moon here, lighting up the pitch black wonderfully. The local council is penny pinching and started turning off all the street lights at midnight. It is very, very dark then and very eerie when you’re outside when they go off…like one global click and all the lights go out! Our Full Moon was very silvery but I was grateful for that last night! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful post LInda… I Felt the still early morning as dawn began to break, and heard the birds beginning their dawn chorus… in spite of the hard work, to be up and awake to all that beauty must be a very sweet and poignant experience… XXXX
