Last night's perigee full moon was something to see. Just before 8pm Gavin set up the camera and tripod in anticipation of moonrise, but we had to wait a while longer for this shot, waiting until the moon rose above the fences and trees in front of our house. Big, bright and golden - what a show!
The official start of spring is scheduled for 7:21 this evening at the vernal equinox. That's welcome news; somehow February and March have seemed endlessly grey and damp. Mother Nature seems on board - there are shoots of new green growth in the garden and there are buds on all the trees and shrubs. Spring really is around the corner!
