Blue Moon

We have the second full moon of the month tonight - officially known as a blue moon.  Very fitting, in many ways, that it should coincide with Neil Armstrong's memorial service.
This month has been a bit of a curate's egg ... good in parts.  After all the rain we've finally had a couple of weeks of sunshine and my garden is looking almost happy again.  We've started on a major redesign of a couple of areas so there are bare patches, which I hate, but it's only temporary.
Coming up next month is the start of my next OU course, the long awaited A215.  After that is an embroidery course at West Dean which I just managed to scrape into and need to start preparing for quite soon, if I'm not going to be out of my depth.
