July's full moon is the Thunder Moon. True to its name, we did have a thunderstorm here last night when the moon was at its fullest. It marks the middle of summer and thunderstorms are most frequent at this time. It's also called the Full Buck Moon as this is the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur.
The easeful days,
the dreamless nights;
The homely round of plain delights;
The calm, unambitioned mind,
The simple stuff of summer time.
Aster Austin Dobson
