'cause it's the fourth full moon

Blue Moom tonight! mot because it is the second full moon in the month but because it is the 4th full moon in the season.  And there in it's glowing primordial Luna glides among the clouds.  not really blue more like silvery. 
 
Known by names like the Dog days Moon,  the first Harvest Moon, and the full  Moon after Lughnasadh, both referring to the grain harvest that starts about the first of August.  though a little late in the month it still might be called the New Loaves Moon.  Other names include The Brewer's Moon,  the Pear Moon, Wode Moon, for the wode plant from which blue dyestuff came is ready to harvest, and the Wort Moon, wort meaning more or "herbal".  Minty"s Moon, a minty being someone who knew how to gather and use herbs, some of which were gathered by the light or the dark of the moon.

The Woodcutter's Moon, as it is  sometimes called, can you imagine cutting wood by the light of the moon?
