Full pink moon

Or part thereof. Hard to find a good shot through the trees, and yes it is a moving target when seen through the zoom. Ruth P thought I’d sent the second picture before. No, it is a new one, however admittedly similar to what I’ve got often in the past when trying to take a picture of the moon.


I watch for these each spring in our back woods, and saw our first ones pop up two or three days ago. This morning, suddenly, there was a plethora. Didjaknow, just like the Aspen, their colony shares a single root? Mayapple is also called mandrake. It flowers in May, but its “apple” comes later. The fruit may be eaten in small quantities but only after it turns yellow, and only after removing the seeds. Linnaeus described this plant in 1753. See more at wildfoods.ca.
