Today's song/Pink Moon

From the Farmers' Almanac:

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 celestial body 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.


  1. Are the shad running? I had forgotten all about that. We used to go down to Bourne to watch when I was a girl.


  2. Nan, I have missed the last full moon or two. We have had so many clouds. Were you able to see April's full moon?

  3. Mary, what a neat thing to do.

    Aisling, yes I saw it. And I couldn't resist posting because of the Nick Drake song. :<)
