I don’t think anyone could have missed the news that the moon was visible at it’s biggest for 15 years on Friday night, I really wanted to go and take some photo’s of it as well but it has gone from being very cold and clear to being cold, cloudy and raining from Friday evening. It rained ALL night on Friday, so there was not chance of getting any photos of it.
However I could see the effects that it had had on Saturday morning, there was water every where, even the little stream at the bottom of our road was threatening to bust its banks. I’ve been doing a lot of reading about moon planting recently and one of the explanations I’ve heard as to whyit works is that planting when the moon has pulled the water up from the soil means tat seeds germinate faster, I think there is a lot more to it though.
I’d arranged to go out on Saturday, and so just happened to drive right through the area (I very rearly do this) and it was like it everywhere, even water courses that I would hardly call streams were running fast with white foam appearing anywhere that the water met a stone or a tree that normally stands happily on it’s woodland floor.
