On Writing: Strawberry Moon

The first full moon in June is called the “Strawberry Moon” by people in the Midwestern United States. Many people believe that the name derives from the color (and it is usually tinted pink/red), but the name actually comes from the fact that strawberries are generally ripe this time of year. The name was a reminder to go out and pick them.

This phenomenon has me brainstorming short story ideas. I like it when nature provides a writing prompt!
