According to Farmer's Alamanac:
Full Flower Moon – May In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon.
The above moon was photographed on May 13th. We had hoped for a clear night on May 14th; however, when we looked at the NEXRAD radar, this was the picture:
Therefore, we didn't capture the moon at 100% of full, but we were rather happy with the beautiful moon on May 13th. Therefore, we named it the "Almost" Full Moon. Since the month of May is the Flower Moon, we are sharing some lovely purple wildflowers that we photographed on the side of a rural Georgia highway!
