Early on a Monday Morning

Good morning everyone - well, here we are at the beginning of a new week.  I was up very bright and early this morning (5.30am!) and decided to hang the washing out as it was already very sunny (quite nippy though).  And as I walked in and out of the house with the washing I looked up and spotted the moon - well, how could I not grab my camera?!

The sky is so clear this morning, and with the zoom on full throttle I could even spot the craters on the moon's surface - and yes, I was Moonstruck!!

A few other things caught my eye in the garden too, I had bought a few plants at the Open Gardens event on Saturday... a pot of basil...

Liquorice mint - quite unusual flavour but very refreshing...

and a Sedum plant - we used to call these Ice Plants, due to the sparkly appearance when water droplets catch on the leaves - the butterflies love the pink flowers in the Autumn when these are at their best...

Can you spot the bee busy amongst these blossoms?

And finally I couldn't help taking this photo of our olive tree, branches swaying against the blue sky - could almost imagine that I was in Spain...

Well, must away as the household is starting to stir, and there is a long, busy week ahead.  Hope you have a great Monday!



  1. The time first thing in the morning before anyone else stirs is wonderful isn't it. So quiet and peaceful! Glad you enjoyed it. xx

  2. My, you accomplished a lot early in the morning. Love the moon photo and all of your new plants. I like the olive tree too. :-)

  3. I love looking at the moon - I find it very relaxing for some reason. We've been buying plants too. More and more!

  4. NIce photo of the moon, I've taken night photos but never tried one in the day light - me thinks I shall give it a try! Lovely photos x

  5. I do love spotting the moon. You got a lovely shot. I love quiet, peaceful starts to the day. Today was my last day at school and I won't be returning so I am very, very, very happy indeed. Too hot here right now for anything. Very dusty and windy, too. My poor little plants are shattered half the time. But I can't imagine not having them. How does anyone live without having some type of greenery around them? I know I can't. Have a good week. Tammy

  6. I sure wish I had your early morning energy! Your moon shot came out wonderful. Enjoy your busy week.. I hope you have lots of enjoyable days. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  7. What a wonderful start to your Monday morning! Everything looks so much nicer in the sunshine. Have a great week!
