The Full April Moon of 2011 
reaches fullness tonight. 
Her name: FULL PINK MOON. 

This photo of a farmer's field was taken by Cheryl Powers, in the Southern Appalachian Mountains along the banks of the Hiawassee River near Hayesville, North Carolina. 

The Full Pink Moon got its name long ago  from Native Americans who were stuck by the many fields they saw in April covered with small, wild pink flowers. A list of full moon names can be found in the Farmer's Almanac.

This photo of creeping phlox was taken by Nancy Simpson in her garden on a mountain in the Southern Appalachian Mountains
