Why the April Full Moon is called the Full Pink Moon

Full moon nicknames are inspired by nature. The April full moon is referred to as the Full Pink Moon, named for a flowering pink herb moss widespread that time of year. Spring is on its way.

Or maybe you thought the name would be tied to rain because “April showers bring May flowers”.
