The California Central Valley in Spring is long celebrated for its expansive view of the moon. It is often observed with the fruit trees, symbolizing the seasons, the Spring Equinox and the ongoing giving of the earth, water and sun. With this point of view standing in the orchard, looking up at the moon, one maintains balance: feet on the ground, eyes on the moon. The abundance of blossoms foretells the fruit that will come.
