Beaver Moon, Frost Moon, Mourning Moon, Tree Moon
The trees stand dormant and naked. The Summer birds have flown south. The frost settles in or snow begins to fall. The beavers are busy making last minute preparations for the Winter ahead.
The November Full Moon is all about the final Winter preparations. It’s a time to bundle up and relax. A time to surround ourselves with things that will comfort and sustain us during the dark and cold that has so recently arrived at our doorstep.
At this time of the year, the berries have ripened on the Chinese Tallow trees. The White-winged Doves go crazy for these berries. Every time, I’m in the backyard, I hear a lot of wing flapping in the neighbor’s tree across the alley. There are at least two dozen White-winged Doves sitting in the Chinese Tallow tree. And each dove keeps picking these delicious fruits until the tree is empty.

Today, Germany celebrates its 30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. East and West Germany became officially “one” country and therefore many people became reunited with their families, again. Since 1990, we celebrate Day of German Unity on October 3rd.
We had a beautiful sunny afternoon, today. The rain is gone, the wind died out, and we had 52°F (11°C). It was comfortable enough to take a walk with a hoodie or a light jacket. Sara and her friend wanted to go to the playground, so they rode with their bikes way ahead of me. I walked slow to take all the nice Autumn beauty in, before I caught up with them. While Sara was still playing, I took the circle around the block to capture more photos. And by the time, I’ve got home, the kids were sitting on the front porch. The waxing gibbous Moon rose in the sky. And the Sun was ready to set.
