Once in a Blue Moon



I know, the moon above is orange not blue, but this is the moon that rose the night before the full moon. As the second full moon of June, it earns (by some definitions) the label of a "blue moon." Here is a good explantion.

Almost as rare as a blue moon is having me write two blog posts in one day, but I did! I didn't want to ignore the moon, which was shining and silver and pouring in all of the uncovered windows last night, though I don't have one of my old-fashioned Camp-Girl moon names to correspond to it.

What a gorgeous moon! And even better is reading your wonderful words twice in one day, Aisling. :)

Rapunzel, Why thank you! Today I only got half a post written. I'll have to finish it up tomorrow. *grin*

I missed the blue moon this time around. I like to watch the moon's phases during the month but didn't realize there was a full moon on the 30th until July 2. At least I saw it through your picture!

Catherine Mary, Well, you *almost* saw the full moon through my photo. This was the night before, but it was so gorgeous I had to try for a photo. I wish I had camera equipment that would do it justice!
