West 4th Strawberry Moon
The Strawberry Moon is on the loom and we are weaving wraps, cowls, scarves, and pieces for conversion into our bags.
According to the Farmers Almanac, the coinciding of this June's full moon with the Summer Solstice was a celestial rarity- having not occurred in nearly seventy years! This heavenly treat brought with it a pure sparkle of vibrant summer energy, and beautiful, ripe light to our evening sky. We sipped tea....and watched the sun make it's departure....descending down these Northern California hills to take its leave for this magical Strawberry Moon. According to the Farmer's Almanac, Native Americans, who walked this rich land and watched this golden moon glow in the sky before our day, knew this moon to signify the time had come for summers fruit harvest. Hence, we give remembrance and look up to this luscious Strawberry Moon.
This photo was taken from a real special spot, here on this Sonoma hilltop. Truly just a lovely slice of heaven, a mountain top farm that raises 4H chickens - We have a couple trusty steeds for riding & beautiful sun kissed gardens. The farm is surrounded by blackberries & a creek & we have many fruit trees on the property. Wildlife here is a plenty, Hawks, hummingbirds, coyotes, mountain lions, peacocks, etc. On the surrounding mountain land free range grazing cows are everywhere in giant open spaces. They often stop traffic & act as really unproductive crossing guards. It has been a peaceful, magical & beautiful place to call home.
