Pink Moon

 The Full Moon of April is known as the Pink Moon.  

This moon gets its nickname from an herb.  It is called pink moss (also known as wild ground phlox) and is one of the first flowers in bloom each spring.  Since the wildflowers are pink, the moon is so named.

Some other interesting names for this moon are:

Full Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon (perfect for Easter!), Full Fish Moon, Full Seed Moon, Grass Moon, Spring Moon, Peony Moon, Planter's Moon, Flower Moon, Wildcat Moon,Growing Moon, The Awakening Moon,

and my favorite...

Moon When Geese Return in Scattered Formation.

Hope you have a chance to enjoy the moon tonight and stay warm!
