eostre flower. (anemone patens, pulsatilla ludoviciana)
supermoon. it's not pink.
the first full moon of spring is called pink (accordingtothefarmersalmanac) due to corresponding springtime blooms of creeping phlox a wildflower in eastern north america. nothing of a wildflower sort is blooming here.
this ranunculus is from the local nursery.
coyotes. gophers. winter eggshells, seedling starting pots. a branch of pussy willow that unexpectedly rooted. spring crocuses.
half of the half-eggshells were lost (to complete fracture) by poking holes in the bottom for drainage, but 48's enough. spring is sproinging. crunching shells when planting later, if there are plants, should work for root development.
... several days of crocus blooms. bonus, a total lunar eclipse at dawn goddess, Ēostre-Ostara, so a weekend of number 3 tetradiness and plenty of bluish purple flowers. apr 1 was first sighting.
computus: ecclesiastical full moons; council of nicea. first council of nicea. easter-ostara is on the first sun day (Sól, diēs Dominica, Ra Day) after the paschal-passover full moon on or after mar 21, a fixed date, spring equinoxish on gregorian calendar. on julian time easter is apr 12. sister sun, brother moon. sun-Sól (sunday) is the sister of brother moon-Mani (monday). their father is Mundilfari, one of Saturn's (saturday) 62 moons. newton said the moon falls every day.
Nuts! Mid-Summer, crocuses' Second Coming (!) .
Coincidentally, these "harbingers-of-spring" (that is: spring! SPRING!) are also at Half-Moon, a halfmoon Moonday ('quartermoon moonday' technicalities...)
