What can I say, this has been another (thankfully) mostly snowfree winter so there have been no great snow or winter photos to blog about.
On Monday night we had the rising of the Snow Moon. Of particular interest with this full moon was that shortly after it's appearance on the horizon the International Space Station was scheduled to pass between the moon and earth and there should have been a six minute period when the Space Station was visible. Alas, we don't have a clear view of the horizon for such events and despite ten minutes of running around the neighborhood we were not able to catch a glimpse of this unusual event.
Each month the moon has a name associated with it and with February traditionally being a big month for snow it is not hard to figure out why the new moon has that title. It's too bad we could not see the horizon because it was a great clear night for viewing.
Around 8pm I stepped out on the deck with my "point and shoot" camera to see what I could see.
I just went back and looked at the blog for February last year - and I see that on February 28 I show daffodils blooming in the front yard along with blossoms on the plum tree. Guess I need to take a stroll in the front yard tomorrow and see what's happening. March will bring forth lots of new spring growth and pretty sights that I just want record with my camera and post here. So check back.
