Pink, pink, pink, pink, pink Moon

Yesterday evening saw April’s new full moon, known as the Pink Moon  – named as such by North American / Canadian Indians because it co-incides with the flowering of a pink flower known as the Wild Ground Phlox and the Creeping Phlox. The moon isn’t pink but the landscape is.

One of my favourite albums – Pink Moon by the late and sorely missed Nick Drake – if you don’t know the folk musician Nick Drake I recommend you check him out. Pink Moon is a rather dark album – a better starting place is perhaps either Five Leaves Left or Bryter Later.
