Honey Moon - June

Flower moon.

Honey moon.

The bee drinking in this moon flower's nectar will be working away as the petals unfold. I can imagine the flower sounding a bit like the rustling of a taffeta skirt, the buzzing of the bee slowed to the percussion sounds of a tabla drum.  Exotic, sexy symphony of sound.

The full moon this month is also the date of a lunar eclipse. This event can be seen in the sky Saturday evening in the U.S, India, the Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, and Japan.

If I  happen to  wake up between 3 and 4 tonight I will climb up on deck to catch a glimpse - hopefully it is not too cloudy to watch it happen.
