FULL MOON ON THE RISE!


Friday, April 6, 2012, at approximately 09:18:42 pm.

The April full moon is also known as the Full Pink Moon, which was named for the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, one of the earliest flowers of the spring. Many other pink flowers bloom in April as well as blossoms on the trees. In just a short walk around the neighborhood,  I was able to photograph nature’s many variations of pink.

The moon, like a flower
In heaven’s high bower
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.
                     ~ William Blake

Flowers in the video, in order of appearance: Lilac, Crab Apple, Redbud, Pink Dogwood, Tulip, Cherry, Crab Apple with Chickadee, Rhododendron

  2. A lovely neighbourhood to live in. I didn’t know some of these flowers. What is the bird?

    Thought it might be a good idea, then, to include the names of the flowers and birds. I’m just discovering the camera’s amazing ability to get close ups and trying to figure out how to capture birds that flit around.
