May's Full Flower Moon

Full Flower Moon
At the time of the Full Flower Moon — which is May in most areas — the flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon. (source: Farmer's Almanac). Taken on May 26, 2010. I assume that the color of the moon was because of the Quebec forest fires. We were having hazy, even smoky, days and spectacular sunsets.

  1. We have a name for it but it isn't the same. I asked Patty what it was and she couldn't remember either. So now we will have to look it up.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my painting blog. It drew my attention to your blog and your lovely photos. I haven't been doing the open studio lately, but feel free to stop by some time. 525 4705

  3. That's a stunning shot of the moon.
