Full Moon

The View from the Patio

My pictures of the full moon never, ever do it justice. But thanks goodness there are plenty of folks who know how to take a professional photo that does.
Even more interesting than the pictures are the names for each full moon. All provided by the native Americans.
January’s full moon was known this year as the Super Blood Wolf Moon. Because of the closeness to the earth and the eclipse. Which was a real treat to witness, and it did turn red. Sadly I didn’t get a picture, at least not one that you would recognize.
But for your information here’s a list of the upcoming moons:
February 19th      Snow Moon -
March 20th          Worm Moon
April 19th            Pink Moon
May 18th             Flower Moon
June 17th            Strawberry Moon
July 16th             Buck Moon
August 15th         Sturgeon Moon
September 14th   Harvest Moon
October 13th       Hunter’s Moon
November 12th    Beaver Moon
December 12th    Cold Moon
The Farmers gives more details if you're interested.
For me, just researching this blog brought an idea for a new series of murder mysteries. Yay for research!
How are you progressing with your goals, writing or otherwise? 
My writing goals are suffering, but I have a lot on the table right now, so I can’t complain. Because I'm moving forward and still have that New Year glow and a positive outlook for the future. I hope you do too!


  1. I didn't realize there were so many moons!

    I love it when stories just seem to fall into my brain.

    1. Hi, Elizabeth.
      Me either, until I looked it up. And I so too, love it when story ideas first hit.

  2. Sure a moon for all things, not sure I want worms though.

  3. The beaver moon? No comment...
    Now you're off and running with a new idea!

    1. Somehow I knew that one would get a comment. :)
      New ideas are great, time to get it all down for all the ideas, impossible!

  4. Do you need to be buck-naked for the buck moon?

  5. Hi Yolanda - interesting range of moon names ... some I knew others not. Wonderful you've got some new ideas for your murder mysteries ... good to have that backlist of thoughts to create from.

    Excellent if you're moving forward and are still in the positive glow - I'm just getting my head into gear for the new year ... and positivity returns ... take care - cheers Hilary

    1. I am working on staying positive, and it's not as hard as I thought. For the first time in a long, long time. I'm doing exactly what I want! It's working too!

  6. Hi Renee...

    Yes, this moon was particularly gorgeous. I didn't see it red, but it was so clear and huge.

    Hope things fall into place the way you want them to and good luck on the new story!

    1. Thanks, Michael, I stayed up late to watch the entre thing. I was beautiful!

  7. ♪ Shine on, shine on harvest moon... ♪

    Somehow, I can't imagine a song being sung about a worm moon. ☺

    Very cool that the moon research gave you another scathingly brilliant idea for a new series. Way to go, girl!

    1. Thanks, Susan. So many ideas so little time! :)

  8. Hi nice blog there..I hope that you will continue this good work and i get extra knowledge from there...
