Full Strawberry Moon!

Keep your eyes to the sky tonight for June's full moon.  The name of this one is Full Strawberry Moon.  From my extensive research I have found that strawberry picking season peaks during this month. Hence, Full Strawberry Moon.  Europeans called this the Rose Moon.
(This is a picture I got of the Strawberry Moon from the internet) 

I hope Mike is able to get a good picture!  

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

Hi Rem,

It will be fun to see what kind of pictures Mike can get. Will he be taking them from Remington Drive? I bet they will be better from there.

Kisses,
Stella

Rose Moon- what a beautiful name. I wonder whether there is anything to do with my little Rosie sister. People also call her Rose : )

Rem!! I had no idea you were such a smart research dog!! You are for sure a pooch of many talents. I LOVE stuff like this and have taken several pictures of the moon to post, but never got around to it yet. Tell me, is there a name for the moon for every month? Thanks so much for the heads up, or I would have missed it! I will be looking at it and taking pictures tonight, and thinking of you as I do! Good job!! Woof woof!!

We currently have lots of roses and lots of strawberries, so this moon is very well named!

We had lots of fun doing zoomies under the full moon last night - we will check out this strawberry one too - wonder if any berries will fall to earth.

We saw a great moon last night. We'll be sure to keep our eyes out for the Strawberry Moon tonight. Maybe it will help our strawberries turn red faster.:)

Thanks for letting us know.
We had a thunderstorm earlier this evening, but it cleared up so we can see the moon!
Sure would be nice to have some strawberry ice cream to go along with the viewing...
