April's Full "Pink" Moon

"This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn."

Maybe I will do some "pink" things like..

Make a Pink Strawberry Smoothie.....

8 frozen strawberries
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cubes ice, crushed

Whip up in a blender & enjoy

Maybe listen to Pink Floyd's Dark side of the Moon...

I think I will sow my Echinacea seeds
( aka Pink Cone flower) tomorrow..

Now lets see if the moon actually will look pink tonight...**wink**

I do sow the Coneflower seeds but the rootings seem to do better...but I have some good compost to throw them in this year so I will update on how they do...:)
