Flower Moon

On Tuesday, May 20, there is a full moon.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the full moon in May is known as the Flower Moon, which I think is beautiful and evocative of the beginning of summer when the plants and trees are blossoming in abundance.

May's full moon was also sometimes called the Corn Planting Moon because, according to folklore, it was an good time to sow corn. According to, the Medieval name for it is the Hare Moon and the Celtic name is Bright Moon.
