Moon was near full last night – rising at Sunset in a perfectly clear sky. Merlin says the full Ivy Moon is coming on Saturday 23rd October at 2:44:37am (Merlin’s calendar).
Here’s some information on Ivy from botanical.com: Botanical page for Ivy. I like the connection of Ivy with wine, and the use of the Ivy bush as a pub sign in the olden days!
At this time of year, the Ivy flowers seem to be setting and the hard black berries are starting to form. The local pigeons feed of the berries later in the winter, when there’s not much else around.
