Snow Moon


Moon above my home sweet home.
2-10-17

February's full moon is called the Snow Moon.
Like all full moons, it was named by the Native Americans,
and given the name because February has more snowfall
than any other month on the calendar!
I wonder if my love of the moon has anything 
to do with my Cherokee DNA. 
And you know I love snow!
Snow.
Moon.
Snow Moon.

    1. Yeah...my great, great grandmother on my mothers side was a full blooded Cherokee!
      I don't know much about her, but I do have a picture. I'll have to post it some time.

  3. I think it is your Cherokee blood that is causing this fascination with the moon! You should have been named 'Pocahontas', or even 'Stands with Fist' (was that you in Dances with Wolves?)

    I like the name 'Moon Whisperer' by Suzanne, very appropriate. Ha!

    1. Haha...no, it's Pink Cloud. I gave myself that name when I was very young...back when playing Cowboys and Indians was still politically correct. Haha.

  5. Beautiful shot and lots of detail . . . but I can't see any snow . . lol . . why . . because it is coming here. Fascinating about the American Indian names . . . Snow Moon and Pink Cloud. I should think you are very proud of your Cherokee ancestry. Start a fire and send me a smoke message . . . lol

  6. Yes, it absolutely does! Just like my love of gardening comes from my long line of ancestors who farmed. That moon was plumb gorgeous last night.

  7. Nice moon shot! I don't think we've seen the moon for 6 weeks now, winter here is so cloudy.

  8. I posted pictures on my blog as well Betsy. It was just amazing. And speaking of Cherokee DNA, I am from north Georgia where the Cherokee lived and developed their written language. New Echota, Spring Place and the Chief Vann house are very interesting historic sites.

    1. Very interesting. My g-g grandmother was from Tennessee....she married a white man to avoid the Trail of Tears.

  9. An amazing picture of the snow moon over your home! February is when we normally get the most of our snow here, but one would never know it by today's weather. In the 50's with lots of sun. Our six or so inches of snow that was on the ground two days ago is now all gone! Glad I took my snow pictures yesterday. :-)
