The May moon over Chilliwack on Tuesday.

e just had our Full Flower Moon. The May moon is a good time for photographers to show off their skills because it's lower in the sky, and hence easier to get other things into the photographs like buildings or mountains to give the big spring moon some scale.

The Flower Moon, also called a Frog Moon, got its name because it's the time of year when buds open and the growing season begins. It's also the month when frogs become active.


People in the community have remarked how this year there seems to be more dandelions than in other years.


*Some might refer to this as a Full Election Moon.
