  5. No one quite captures reality like you do, Merisi.
    This should be a book cover.
    And, if you will excuse me, I am going to now go write the book, and then ask you for the rights to this moonscape!

    1. Merci, Cip!
      How come I have to think of Cyrano de Bergerac when I read your lines???

      And yes, get going, I want to see that book published, and soon!
      The cover is yours.

  6. . . . and the beastly thing kept me awake all night. It was freezing. Wouldn't mind having a strawberry moon, I guess ours would be in November.
    Lovely image.

    1. We definitely are on opposite sides of the globe! It was hot all day, and when the clouds moved in, I opened all the windows and in the cool of the evening, listened to the raindrops while falling asleep.

  7. As a gardener I like the name Planting Moon, Merisi. On the last few nights I've been looking up and trying to see the 'supermoon', but it's been too cloudy here in the north of England.

    1. I read somewhere that the "super moon" is more a darling of esoterics than scientists. Quiet comfort when the clouds keep it hidden! ;-)
