Supermoon.


So tonight is the supermoon and it is gloriously covered in cloud. Apparently if you carry a hazel twig and eat a fern seed collected tomorrow night ie the first night after the full moon you will become invisible. Or so the Medieval folklore story goes......

The image is one of ours of the full moon...obviously not today's though!

  2. No no no....to be invisible you turn on the tv and try and have a conversation with your husband. Works for me! x

  3. A very brief glimpse here around 10.00 when the clouds briefly parted. I gave the hazel twig and fern seed a miss, hope that's OK :) We regularly see fabulous full moons rising above the hill line so in truth, this one was nothing out of the ordinary.

    I rather liked Stuart's very down-to-earth write up here

    1. Thanks for the link Jayne. Mr GBT and I were discussing just how much bigger the moon would look had we been able to see it. We had reached a similar conclusion.

  4. We had a glorious view of rain, rain, rain. Humphff. So have had to contend ourselves with looking at other's photos :)

  5. Here in Wales we - naturally - had 10/10 cloud cover too. Sigh. It was ever thus.
