Full Pink Moon

We had a pink sunrise this morning.Photo of Sunrise

The full April moon is known as a Pink Moon. It was so named as it coincides with the flowering of wild ground phlox, also known as moss pink. This is also going to be the “smallest” moon of 2016 as it is at its farthest point from the Earth in its orbit. It didn’t make for a very good photograph tonight, but it is blazing through the cloud cover.Photo of full moon

I also had my usual spiky company.
