Full Pink Moon
Full Pink Moon - The grass pink or wild ground phlox is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names were the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and -- among coastal tribes -- the Full Fish Moon, when the shad came upstream to spawn. This is also the Paschal Full Moon; the first full Moon of the spring season. The first Sunday following the Paschal Moon is Easter Sunday, which indeed will be observed three days later on Sunday, April 12. - via space.com
This month's full moon photo is taken through the dark woods across the street from my house. I LOVE living in the woods. It's so dark here at night. The stars are incredible!
It was absolutely beautiful outside today. I sat outside for a long time listening to nothing but the whispering pine trees and soaking up the warm sunshine. Ahhh............................
