It was a whopper last night.
Managed to get beans planted today should be big uns if lunar cycle planting works out.
Full moon influence best for planting climbing plants according to Almanak.

The moon looked lovely over the weekend. I'd never heard of a supermoon before now. Interesting.

Like a Star @ heaven Once a year when moon orbit and earth orbit are nearest.
Looks even bigger sometimes because Earth orbit takes a while and is oval not circular so after n years we're even closer to moon than in other years.
I much prefer poetic descriptions though.

Been a lot of comments about this moon. How unusual it is.
Full moons in any case mean the closing down of events to build up again with the new moon rising for fresh starts.
Wonder what kind 'closing' it depicts this time?
What the new moon will bring in it's wake.

You have the wrong season petal you are the UK. This is in the relatively mild wet season called Spring, it is followed by the warmer and probably wetter season wrongly called summer, then the cooler wet season called Autumn and finally the freezing cold very wet or snowy season known as winter. If you think of the UK as having that pattern then when the weather is good you can tale it as a pleasant surprise.

As to Adelaide this is about the equivalent of the UK's 8th Novemeber 27 C today beautiful (Ok its getting cooler and this is the first hot day for a few)..

Gorgeous here in Sydney too Smile (Sorry Brits!)

I tried to see the last of the supermoon last night from the windows but it was right above the unit (and I didn't want to go outside in my pjs for a look). The light was bright though.

Over 80 today in Portland, Oregon USA!
I woke up in the middle of the night, and was surprised at how bright it was in the house. Went to the front window and saw the front yard and the street bathed in beautiful white moonlight from the Super Moon! Beautiful...

Ok,you Aussies,stop rubbing it in... Laughing

Still raining here,veritable downpour.
The hottest I remember in Oz was in the 1960's.
Working in a closed office in Brisbane,the temp kept rising. Even the paperwork was curling with the heat.
All we had in those days was fans....was glad to get home that evening.
Checked with the telly what the temp was....it had been 101 degrees at mid day.
Very Happy

I've gone rusty what with all the rain we've had.
Funny thing is when I dig then nine inches down the soil is still bone dry. Most of it must just be running off.

We couldn't see the full moon because of cloud cover. The day after, though, I saw it in the western sky.

It wasn't full then but still fairly magnificent. I was driving down the toll way with a beautiful red dawn behind me and a gorgeous moon ahead.

How more beautiful could this world be?

We are heading into another benign Autumn day so life is good.

Back a few years ago Anna Duncan and April Mackie, 2 Glasgow mediums, flew in straight from -11 into a record breaking Adelaide heatwave 43 C just on the 110F for about 8 days never cooler than 41 and nearly up to 46.

Even we Adeladians were suffering and we are a tough bunch in summer.
