It was shining bright last night, and promises the same tonight.
I love this name for the April full moon, which also goes by Full Pink Moon , Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and — among coastal tribes — the Full Fish Moon, when the shad come upstream to spawn.
here is a photo of last night's moon, from the Facebook page EarthSky:

The Peonies in my garden have very tight buds, and with this cool Spring, they don't look ready to bloom for a while... which is fine with me. The profusion of Tulips, Lilies of the Valley, Ajuga, and Moss Phlox don't need any more competition .
