Full Flower Moon

🗓️ May

🌐 Earth

Before humans

The pink of April announced the abundance of growth that sets in during the May month of the Flower Moon.
Abundance is in the air…and basically everywhere!
Why should we celebrate this lunar event?
Well, let me count the petals on this flower!

The Flower Moon got its name from the blooming flowers of spring.
As the weather warms up, the plants start to flourish and the world transforms into a botanical garden, so it makes sense that the full moon in May would be called the Flower Moon.
And what better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than Mother Nature’s own version of a fireworks display?

In the Northern Hemisphere May is a time of year when the world is awash in color, the air is filled with sweet fragrances, and the night sky is graced by the gentle glow of the moon.
In many cultures, the Flower Moon is also considered a time to harvest and prepare for the growing season. So, why not take advantage of this opportunity to tidy up your home and get it ready for the warmer months ahead? Clean out your closet, reorganize your pantry, and maybe even plant a vegetable garden!

There’s no better way to celebrate the Flower Moon than with flowers!
Decorate your home with fresh blooms, plant a garden, or visit a local flower show.
Host a floral-themed dinner party, organize a flower-picking excursion, or simply enjoy a relaxing bath surrounded by rose petals.
And don’t forget to stop and smell the roses!

Flower Moon is a time to celebrate the arrival of spring, the beauty of nature, and all the wonderful things that come with it.
So, put on your gardening gloves, grab a bouquet of flowers, and bask in the glow of this celestial beauty.
Just remember, when it comes to the Flower Moon, it’s not about the size of your blooms, it’s about how you plant them!
