Worm Moon

David and I were driving home last night on HWY 82 near Bonham, Texas as the full moon was rising.  We pulled over on a dirt road and tried to capture the moon with our iPhones.  This was my best shot.

I looked up the full moon in March in the Farmer's Almanac and found it is called the Worm Moon. (http://www.almanac.com/content/full-worm-moon-marchs-moon-guide). "The Full Worm Moon was given its name by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.  At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins."
