Moonlight in the Garden . . .

Strawberry Moon in the Garden, June 2012 - michaela medina harlow - June’s Strawberry Moon Rises Above the Ninebark, in Full Bloom

A Strawberry Super Moon and a June garden in full bloom… Could there be a more lovely way to celebrate the first weekend of summer? The Strawberry Moon is full on Sunday, June 23rd, at 7:33 am ET, and the full moon is at perigee this month (when the moon is at its closest point to earth). The moon will appear as an extra-large, or ‘Super Moon’ when it rises at 8:38 pm ET. (check out, here, to learn more about June’s ‘Super Moon’).

Super-sized or regular, there’s nothing quite like strolling through a garden on a June evening with a strawberry-mint mojito, admiring La Luna . So remember to look up and enjoy our lovely, mysterious, celestial neighbor in the night sky.
