Woooo Hoooo! Look what's happening in my front yard!
We've had a few days in the 40's and yesterday was up to 56 degrees, positively balmy. The pussywillow is already popping out fuzzies, and last night I stood on my front porch without a jacket and experimented with full-moon shots using new camera:
The February full moon is the Snow Moon, or the Hunger Moon, as this is generally the month of heaviest snow. It certainly has earned its name this year, but I think the worst is over. If pussywillows are out, spring can't be far behind.
We made it!
(P.S. I had to fiddle with the moon images in editing to reveal the details, but I am encouraged by how clear they turned out. Don't know why the moon turned from white to yellow in the process, but I'm working on it.)
