Finding the Full Pink Moon

 I awoke in the early morning hours to find the Full Pink Moon illuminating the sky.
 According to the Farmer's Almanac, it is call the pink moon because it “heralds the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.”

  The almanac also advised  that "the period from the full Moon through the last quarter (April  11) of the Moon is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops."  I guess this means I will be working out in the yard next week, even if the predicted snow comes.  Sigh...

I wish you all a Happy Spring and Happy Easter!

Sharing our week’s finds and discoveries with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds and Friday Photo Journal.


  1. A couple of my favorite things! The full moon and phlox - phlox reminds me of my great grandmother's house where phlox covered the hills. Gorgeous stuff.

    I used to do a full-moon dream board each full moon. I haven't done that in awhile. Perhaps tomorrow I'll get back to that.

  2. Beautiful photos! I create a full moon dreamboard that helps me focus on the coming month. Fun to do.
