Ever wondered why the May full moon is affectionately dubbed the 'Flower Moon'?

As spring unfolds its vibrant tapestry across the globe, this celestial event synchronizes with the blossoming of flowers, marking the onset of the verdant season.

The moniker 'Flower Moon' is just one of several evocative names attributed to this lunar spectacle. From the 'Planting Moon' to the 'Milk Moon' and the 'Hare Moon', each title reflects a unique aspect of nature's cyclical rhythm.
