MAY FULL FLOWER MOON!

Tonight’s full moon is the FLOWER MOON!
 
Each month the moon has a name, which was used to track the seasons by Native Americans and during Colonial times. Some names for May’s full moon are: the Flower Moon, Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. This moon marks a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.
ENJOY THE FULL FLOWER MOON!

APRIL’S FULL PINK MOON!

FULL PINK MOON – APRIL – Tonight is the full Pink Moon named for the wild ground phlox, which is one of the widespread flowers of spring. This moon is also known as the Full Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg Moon! Coastal tribes called this the Fish Moon because now shad fish swim upstream to spawn. The moon won’t really be pink of course, but still it will be a beauty!
