We have a FULL MOON once again and she is a beauty!! I took this photo at 10:00 PM tonight from my front yard.
There are 9 names for the full moon this month:
WORM MOON: The ground has thawed and the earthworms are back out.
WINDY MOON: March is the windiest month of the year.
SAP MOON: The sap is flowing so the tapping of the trees is going on.
SUGAR MOON: The full moon closest to the first day of spring is called the sugar moon to celebrate the making of maple sugar.
CRUST MOON: This comes more from the northern states and mountain areas. The snow begins to melt during the daytime and refreezes at night so it gets crusted over.
CROW MOON: The crows sing out about the end of winter.
LENTEN MOON: In many years Lent occurs during all of March. Not this year.
EGG MOON: The full moon closest to Easter is called the egg moon.
CHASTE MOON: New life is emerging from the earth this time of year. March is the month of purity.
I caught this robin in action this morning. It truly is the Worm Moon.
