Full Moon Art - Jacaranda Moon

Joining with Peggy of Woman with Wings again creating full moon art with the cycles of the moon.

At this time of the year the first blue mauve fuzz starts to appear on the jacaranda tree, while at the same time, as some of the old leaves are still dropping, the new blossoms are also falling, carpeting the grass underneath with pretty splotches.   A plainer moon than I usually do, my plan was to embroider tiny blossoms around the moon, but as I didn't have any of the right colour in my thread arsenal, instead it's scattered with the real thing.

I used this vintage quilt block as a background, since the sky has been dark with rain clouds for days, and all I could see of the moon was a pale, pale glow, just a hint there was anything there.

It's impossible to capture the colour of the emerging blossoms against the grey sky, but the branches make great patterns and have a beauty all their own.

Go visit Peggy and have a look at the full moon art created this month.


  1. If the jacaranda's are out it's another birthday month for my DD#2.
    The blossoms are difficult to capture but wonderful in real life.
    Interesting moon art.

  2. Hi Terry, I remember when jacaranda time signaled final year 12 exams, I still think of that when I see them. A lovely time then for your dd's birthday.
