Last month’s full moon is sometimes called the Full Worm Moon. The Farmers’ Almanac says this is because around the March full moon the ground is softening and earthworm casts begin to appear, which invites the return of robins – a beloved sign of spring.

I learned that this year and was really excited to see my first robin of the spring just two days after the Full Worm Moon!

Tonight is the Full Pink Moon, which refers to the the seasonal blooming of phlox, also known as moss pink (great name). Above, is some moss pink I spotted a couple days ago.

Happy Full Moon!
