March Square | Circles

Full Moon, Blue Moon, Worm Moon. In March there are two full moons, one was on the first of the month, the other (the blue moon) on the last day. The second moon of the month is important because it is used to fix the date of Easter, which is always the Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. This year, that moon appears on Saturday March 31, which means Easter Sunday falls the day after, on April 1.

Why Worm Moon I hear you ask? As temperatures warm, earthworm casts begin to appear and birds begin finding food. It’s also known as Sap Moon, Crow Moon and Lenten Moon.

If you fancy a distraction from the weather this month then join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square

March Square | 20th March

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Well, I’ve never heard of Worm Moon….I think I’m only familiar with Harvest and Blue….

  2. Worm moon or not, the birds are still eating the bread I put out on the lawn. 🙂
    Nice circular moon in a square, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  3. What a fabulous moon and loving the worm! I’ve always been bemused though why the moon decides Easter but not the celebration of his birth!!

    1. I never quite understood why Easter moved around, thought it was something to do with the Church, not the moon! Now it makes sense. Sort of.

    1. Yes there were two in January and none in February. Seems ‘once in a blue moon’ happens more often than we thought!

    1. Bit cloudy down here last night (and today), but I saw loads of stars the night before. And Venus. The night sky is a wondrous thing.

  4. You have certainly done your research on this one Jude. I learnt a lot from this post and a beautiful clear image too.
