Oh, mister moon, moon, bright and silvery moon. . .

January 11 and the moon was HUGE last night. This photo doesn't do it justice as it was taken early in the morning. Astronomy sites called this Hunger Moon, a name from Native American folklore. In the Northern Hemisphere, this was a time of snow and deep winter, when hunting was poor and wild dogs would roam by moonlight searching for food. (If our Sundae's thick coat is any indication, we have snow and deep winter in our forecast!)

Hello Deb! Love the picture of Sundae with the BIG moon overhead! I'd not heard it called Hunger Moon - - that's interesting. We did notice it was HUGE the other night, and lovely.~ Stay warm in Kansas - - here in Georgia we're even supposed to have VERY cold temps this week!
Hugs, Patti Jo :)

Hi Deb,
I just discovered your blog. You have a beautiful garden and I love the pictures of the snow.We do not get much of that in North Florida.
