I took a short walk tonight – it was a beautiful night despite the humid and voggy conditions we’ve been having lately. I could not help but notice the Hua moon, full and bright. Well, Saturday is the night of Hoku (full moon), an important time for many activities, including planting of lāʻau, and so here is some moon-related info.

What the heck is a "bower" and who said that quote?
A bower is a "shady leafy shelter in a wood or garden
", and it was William Blake (1757 – 1827) in the poem "Night"
