Strawberry Moon


They call it a Strawberry Moon. Apparently from what I've read it's because having a full moon on the Summer Solstice told olden cultures it was time to harvest. Seems a little early to me... I guess in Europe Strawberries aren't common so they call it a Rose moon. It's also known as a honey moon and a couple other names. Maybe that full moon explains some weirdness that's been happening, like a snake in my car. Seriously who has that happen? I have an update on that... but not today. I just played with taking pictures last night and thought I'd share.

Supposedly this Strawberry Moon hasn't happened since 1948. My Mother in law said she was 2 at that time. And supposedly it won't happen for another 48 years. They say for most people it's a once in a lifetime experience. I'm 32 + 48, I could potentially see another one.... I'd be 80. Yup, the English Major just did Math... check me!

Happy Summer!

  1. I wish I would have gotten outside to see the strawberry moon! I guess we had some wild weather to accompany it -- incredible sunset, a red-colored rainbow, then thunder and lightening!
