Lunar Eclipse

Last night over much of Europe (not sure if it was visible elsewhere) there was a spectacular Lunar Eclipse. It was a clear starry night and we sat in the garden, listened to the crickets and frogs (and the occasional donkey), inhaled the scent of honeysuckle and watched the magical show.

When it went dark, it gave me goosebumps.  I was thinking about how people must have felt centuries ago when they didn’t understand these things.  Imagine their fear when the night was plunged into darkness and their relief when the moon reappeared!  Is this a good time for planting?  I´m sure it must be…

The photos are not anywhere near as spectacular as what we saw, but hope you enjoy!
