April Full Moon – Full Fish Moon, Pink Moon etc

[from my friend - Marney Bruce again... thank you to Marney!]
Hi everyone – I hope you are all enjoying this sprummer (that’s Spring running into Summer). Many plants are blooming and going to seed up to two weeks ahead of time!

I was on a walk at Widewater this morning and saw many wildflowers still blooming, including wild pink, pussytoes, early saxifrage and Spring beauty. There were turtles, frogs, great blue herons, spring migrating birds and resident birds plus the first zebra swallowtail butterflies I’ve seen this year. What a day!

Full Pink Moon – April This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s full moon on April 28th include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
Love to you all,
Marney
