a new take on full-moon gardening

voir by Laurent Lavede
I WAITED TO SHOW YOU the art of French photographer Laurent Laveder until the full moon this morning, which seemed the right timing to admire the work of a man who likes to make magic with it. Laveder has been doing astrophotography since the last appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1986, including playful images like the one above. A distinct take on gardening by the phases of the moon, no? (Image copyright Laurent Laveder; more can be seen at PixHeaven, where you can purchase photos, or on his website, where I particularly love the section called Nuit, or Night.)

    Thanks for bringing back the childhood memories when my mother used to repeat: “Don’t cut your hair in fourth quarter; wait till full moon for transplanting!”

    And photography is great. I especially liked the the pictures with young moon in “Moon Games” series. So playful!

    I love your blog! Shared it on Food For Maine’s Future on FB and on my personal page as well! It’s absolutely wonderful! I can’t wait for more!

      Thank you, Lil; how sweet. There will be more — especially once winter wanes and I hand in my next book manuscript and clean my desk and catch up on other household chores! :) Usually three times a week in winter, but from February or March onward, five or so. See you soon!

    Brilliant moon photography by Monsieur Laveder. Thank you for sharing. Have been enjoying the fullness and brightness of the moon myself this week.

    Thanks for sharing this photo. We enjoy a beautiful moonrise over the mountains here. This photo captures how I feel at dusk when i want to reach out and hold the fullness of the moon in my arms. Sometimes it almost feels like I can.
