Full Flower Moon
I hope you had the chance to appreciate the full moon that occurred Tuesday, May 29th at 10:20 am
According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, Native Americans named May's full moon the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Corn Planting Moon or Milk Moon, though the milk in this case would probably have referred to the plant milkweed, not cows' milk....
The name would be different dependent on what tribe the Native Americans belonged to.
It is known as 'Flower Moon' as the May moon marks a time of increasing fertility when temperatures are warm enough for plants to bloom while signalling an end to late frosts.
Elsewhere, people of the Cree Nation in northern Montana and parts of Canada named it the Frog Moon because this was the time of year frogs became active.
