Spring Moon

3681xIMG_3685Yesterday in the early evening I stepped outside and saw the almost full moon, which shone with a ghostly light. I ran back inside to get my camera, and opened the aperture to allow the moonlight to flood in, and took these pictures of ghostly daffodils and hellebores–even a moonstruck goldfinch!

3641x3642x3643xMoonlight seems to be the natural element for these hellebores.

3656xThis hyacinth seems quite unearthly.

3654xAs  does the armeria.

3650x3662x3717xIMG_3669Moon-mad daffs.

3657xEven prosaic lamium seemed to glow mysteriously in the lunar light.

3665xPansies turning to the moon.

3674xIcy puschkinia.

IMG_3683The scilla looked under the moon’s influence, too.

3594xLastly, a moonstruck goldfinch.

Namaste. Fran

  1. Wow, Aunt Fran! Those photos of the moon are really something. I’ve never seen it in such detail before (at least in a nonprofessional photo)! And the garden is looking good. 🙂
