Full Moon Effect on Weather - Watching the September Moon

I predict the September Full Moon to be beautiful, judging from the last two nights.

Seems I get to get photos of the moon before it gets full but then close to full moon we have clouds and rain - meaning I get no shots.

The moon seems to be closer to the earth this month or something - basing that on the unusual details I am able to see and capture. Perhaps it is my steadier hand - who knows. Or using my old camera.

September 1 Labor Day Moon

Sept 2 Moon

Sept 3 Moon

Radar for my area:- Rain seems to have a hold on us.

Welll, it is full moon! We have cloudy rainy day today and have had cloudy with promise of rain every day since my last moon posting of Sept 3 and same forecast for every night this week. It is so weird how our weather does that close to full moon.

Searchable? Our blogs are not so very private at all are they? They are searchable. Today, as I put in a search for iron sculptures in pasture along road carmel indiana Guess what came up in the search? My blog. I found that interesting.

No not a new camera and not even my best camera. I left my camera at my son's last weekend and even dropped back by the house to get it. I walked out of the house without it and knew the moment I shut the door that I did not have it. However, I had put the key on their table so was no getting back in. So I am using my old camera. It is just like my new one. I had bought a new one to be sure I could get good dance recital photos back in May. I thought my zoom was failing on me. I guess I was wrong. Thanks for dropping by. Still heavy rain. I am thinking my house may even get chilly today. Got out a little soft jacket of sweat shirt quality in case I need extra warmth. Temp has been running between 60 and 62. Is up to 64 now. You will probably get the rain later today.

Hi, I do hope you get to see the moon tonight! I'd like to see it too. Great moon photos above. Did you get a new camera? New lenses? Yes, Mimi gave me quite a workout! And she got one too. It is amazing how fast she can run in circles! She sure makes my head spin. So far we do not have rain but it is drizzling and it sure looks like a dreary day! But it is cooler than a couple of days ago and I am grateful for the small favor. Thank you for stopping by, I always am happy to see you come visit.

What a neat artpiece you found. I think I recall you posting that. It looks like it might be J.Seward Johnson's artwork, doesn't it? Thank you for sharing. I saw where you said you had much rain day after day. We are having a rainy day here so I am guessing no moon shots tonight. I kept hoping for a break in clouds last night but it never happened. Have a great day!

I looked at carmel public art and they are all nice and could tell a story by just looking at them. Last summer when we spent our Tupperware anniversary we went to a Mountain valley resort and there were life size art there and what caught most of my interest sleeping security guard ^_^
 photo resizedsleepingguard.jpg
while on our way up to the hill where the venue was, looking up we saw from the distance what we thought was a real security guard. We were joking around saying lets take a picture and tell the boss we caught the guard sleeping. when we went near it was then we noticed it was a statue and everyone was laughing and each one of us sat beside him and did a selfie.

Hi YOR! Thanks for coming by! YOur oregano sounds nice. I love just watching plants grow and grow.

I have a mystery weed that volunteered in pots that was supposed to be perenials that should have come back this year. However, we had such a harshly cold spell this year that took a lot of plants out. Anyway, so I have been determine to bring this plant to full bloom. However, it never bloomed instead today there were big cottony like puffs. I saw them as I came in from church. I took photos even. I meant to go right out and clip them into a bag and discard as did not want a zillion of them volunteering next year. I did not think to do that until I was heading back to church for an ice cream social this evening. And guess what I was way too late....the wind had puffed those puffs right away - all gone. I did clip the others that had not open and trashed them. This is a close-up of what they looked llike:

No, I have not figured out the mystery art posting yet. And no it is not the same pieces as my local artist! It is similar but a bit different style. And you really don't understand the size of these pieces - it is a major undertaking just to move one of these pieces. Most of them would not even fit on a regular truck or big truck so far as them being transported. I am just curious as to who the artist is that did such similar work in almost the same setting but out in Indiana which is in the middle of the USA.

I did have a great Sunday and hope you are having a wonderful Monday!

Hi Briar! Thanks for the info and link on this Sept moon! I know that I was able to get details like I have never gotten before with my point and shoot camera. Just wish I could have had a go at it each night. Still completely clouded over outside. I keep looking out to check. It is almost 11 and it would be straight overhead if the clouds were not blocking it. It sets at 5 am so no chance of getting it in the am.

We had a nice cool day today going down to 66 tonight. Supposedly the high for tomorrow is 70. So sounds like a good day for baking my pumpkin and making the pie even.

The basil was cut bunch I got from my organic farmer for making pesto. I have plenty but I love to watch it grow and I don't cut it that much. I took these few pieces and put them in a little pottery type pitcher that is like magic. Anything I put in it roots like crazy. So I have all of those new basil plants to plant in pots with dirt or soil now. I will pot them and perhaps give some to friends as I definitely cannot winter over that many in the house.

Enjoyed your new blog on both wordpress and WU. Thanks for posting it here, too.

You are right that the moon is closer than usual -- the link below explains it. Last month and this month, the full moons were/are Super Moons. The next one will be September 28, 2015. May clear skies come your way tomorrow night for the fullfull moon.
http://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/moon/super-f ull-moon.html

It is 86° here as I write. The last couple of days have been around 90°. My unscientific, unofficial prognostication is that this will be the last 80+ day this year for my location. What's your prediction for Danville?

Your herbs are lovely!!! I'm unclear about how you are growing them. Do you root the basil in water and then transplant? Or are you into hydroponic growing?

Hi WW,
We have grown an Oregano from a tiny 3 inches stalk i got from my sister's plant when I visited her last year. Now I have them in many pots. I have never tried growing basil and cilantro. there is a mall here that sells them grown in plastic cups. So either one who buy to use it for cooking or to start growing them in the yard find it there waiting.

Perhaps someone who saw the art work and liked it bought it from same source or have someone create replica by showing the photo? Have you solved this mystery already? I know it caused you less sleep ha ha ha ha. 2 am your time and you were still up! yay!

It has been raining almost every night here so no chance to glance the lovely full moon.

Have a nice Sunday.. ^_^ I had a nice one. now, being Monday.. work and work

Welll, it is almost full moon! We have cloudy evenings with storm threats every day since my last moon posting of Sept 3 and same forecast for every night this week. It is so weird how our weather does that close to full moon.

I was hoping for some more thoughts related to the strange coincidence of art sculptures so similar to my local artist's work that were posted on WU late night, Friday night in such a similar farm setting as his. I find that so intriguing and would love to know who the artist is.

Thank you Sandi for popping by just about that time and trying to set me straight and convince me it was way past my bedtime.

Happy Sunday everyone. We are to have Mostly cloudy. A slight chance of showers this afternoon. Highs in the upper 70s. Northeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.

Tonight: Cloudy. A chance of showers...mainly after midnight. Lows in the mid 60s. Northeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent.

The same Monday and Tuesday. Guess I will just grab an umbrella after church today and get my walk in. Skipping the early walk.

I did but he titled one of them With the city in Indiana days gone by. And they are not exactly the same pieces though some look similar. It is not the exact same fence. However, oh well...I should stop thinking and try to rest.

Had you thought he may have been in Boston and just labelled the photos is incorrectly?
Wait till you hear from him....now off to bed!

Hahahaha....thanks...I guess I needed someone to tell me that! But don't you think it is a HUGE coincidence and to think they were popped up on WU just for me. I wish I had taken a sweeping photo like that. I may have and deleted it. Now I have to go back to my artist's farm to try to get a big sweep shot as well as check out that little bench statue at the hospital!

What do I think?

I think you go to bed and start again tomorrow when your brain is refreshed!!! Lol

It is certainly a conundrum, but not one to lose beauty sleep over.... So to bed with you - that's an order!!

I am defintely intrigured as to who this artist might be. The pieces are similar to the work of our local artist even the setting of the farm. HOwever the style is a bit different more polished but yet more simple in task whereas my artist's work is more rustic and quite a bit of work in each piece but definitely not painted to conceal the original materials.

Someone posted these photos taken in Indiana.

So, I am picturing all of my blog buds out riding around looking for public art? So does a sculpture of an artist perhaps a father scetching as he has a conversation with his young daughter count? They were sitting on a bench. I thought it was so neat - they were so lifelike that they looked real. I wish I could have gotten a photo but I was in a tight spot with cars and vans and folks waiting. NO way!

Today, I went to South Boston again but with a different mission in mind. I was headed there to take my sister-in-law for a CT scan. Seems she has fallen a couple of times recently and doc wanted to be sure of what was going on.

Well, going to the hospital in SB was new for me. I made sure I got in town early enough to check out the parking lots and all as to where I should go.

Everything went well after picking her up - pretty much in and out thing with no problems. It was there that I saw the beautiful statue of the two people on the bench. They were life size or appeared to be. Right where people were dropping off and picking up! I really wanted to drop back by there and get a photo later but did not. I headed on home as there were storm clouds gathering all around. Of course, now I am dying to go back and check out that outdoor art sculpture. Next trip!

Thanks, Rob! Yes, I had great luck rooting basil, this time. Within two weeks....not sure when the roots appeared as just decided to finally take a peek and there they were! I posted photos over on Aqua's blog but think I will post them here, too.

I have had great success with my oregano this year

Another shot of my oregano

and my cilantro grew like crazy!

YOu will not believe this little special pitcher that I have - probably holds less than a cup of water. Every year I buy some extra basil at the market and pop it in this pitcher and it roots like crazy. I have filled several pots with new basil plants. This new pitcher full is just the bottom of stems that I used for making basil pesto which I just love. The photo might not do it justice if not I will take another shot later.

My Pitcher of Basil

My Basil Roots

These are my success stories of recent days. The cilantro grew to be almost 3 feet tall. I cut it and popped it in bright yellow metal pitcher so wish I had taken a photo. It just fell over the edge to the table about a third of it...a third stood straight up and the other third flopped the other way. I took it to church for brunch table display. It smelled so good. Afterwards I wrapped cuttings for anyone who wanted some to take home. So was a nice friendly cutting affair on the spur of the moment as I was walking out of the house.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Really nice moon photos! So...you've been rooting basil, huh? I discovered that a few years ago. Starting basil from the tiny seeds seems to take forever but I cut basil and stick it in a glass of water in the kitchen. Left some sitting there a couple of days once, and low and behold...roots sprouting! So, whenever I cut extra basil, I let it sprout roots then take it outside and stick it back in the containers. Always plenty of young plants that way.

Hi GG and Skye, Thanks for taking a look at my moon shots! I believe that is true with my moonshots, too, GG.

I deleted my history and closed window. When reopened it worked but I was not in new WU anymore....I have the constant community updating over to the right which I like and also have it in WU Photos. Not talking of classic WU but the Old WU before NUWU! I am sure I will be switched back in a bit if I can figure out the magic password!

Have a wonderful busy day! WOW you sound so busy GG! What's with the insurance quotes, scheduling a multitude of doctors appointments and tests? I hope all is well.

We are heading back to Disney this year, too. I have not heard my daughter mention the Potter World. Am guessing the girls have not hit that stage or craze as yet. Don't think that park is included in the regular Disney pkg maybe. Sounds fun!

Good Moring, saw your comments over at Ylee's about the upload page. Have no idea if it works on mine. Just give it an hour or three and they will most likly have it working again.

Your moon pictures are very nice. It seems like for moon shots I get more crater definition on waxing or waning moons rather than the full moon.

Busy day here of getting insurance quotes, scheduling a multitude of doctors appointments and tests, haggling over phone bills, then figuring out how to get my e-tickets and baggage check-in for a budget airline. (they charge a lot if you do it at the gate.) We are going to Florida in October to see Harry Potter World.

Oy vey, to have a personal assistant would be great lol.

Have a great day : )

Thanks WTS! Yes, probably, my radar is out of Roanoke. It is a beautiful area perhaps close to 80 miles from me. I was just up there this past weekend.

Very nice detail indeed, whatever the cause! I'm sure it was the steady hand ;-)
I just noticed the center of your radar is close to Roanoke, I spent 3 years there as a wee lad :)

Hi YOR, Fun to hear you dreaming the romantic side! I just love the nature side of the moon - its beauty and intrigued by how its pulling and tugging has such an effect on what is happening in nature with almost everything.

Hey, and you win FIRST! Thanks for dropping by to check out my September moon. Who knows it may be my last good shot of it as seems clouds have rolled into my area. I think full moon is on the 8th.

Hi WW,
Good Shot of the moon. It would be wonderful to have another glimpse of a lovely full moon. Nice to sit peacefully while spending time with the baby. It would be an enchanted and a romantic evening.
