Full moon....


Keep your eyes to the sky tonight for the Full Pink Moon -- which is what April's full moon is called.

From what I have found in my research this name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring.

(picture found on the internet)

I hope Mike gets a good picture of this one! 

Later -- Remington -- howling at the moon -- out!

Oh no ... another full moon? The cat is going crazy at our house! Poor Hudson and Rita don't even know what that gray thing darting about is.

Remington I just love your informative posts. I have NEVER heard of the Pink Moon before.
Did you know that there are 13 Full moons each year... and 13 segments in the middle of every turtle's shell???
