#MySundaySnapshot – Moon Gazing 13/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Due to the current ‘coronavirus lockdown’, I have been unable to take any scenic, outdoorsy shots other than from my back garden, which is precisely where this photo was taken earlier this evening.

For the past three months, we’ve had nothing but bad weather. We literally had storm after storm each and every weekend from the start of January to mid-March. Typically, as soon as the entire UK was ordered asked to ‘stay inside’ the sun began to shine and we’ve had the most wonderful weather. Thank god we have a garden otherwise I may just have lost my **** !

It may be slightly cooler today but the evening sky was a beautiful pinkish-purple and with the crescent moon and venus to the right both gleaming bright, it was a sight to behold. 

I’d like to take this opportunity to send my very best wishes to anyone reading this that may work within ‘the essential services’ especially the NHS at present – I hope that you are all staying safe, staying inside (where and when possible) and keeping healthy.

When times are tough, keep your chin up and look to the sky… we are all stardust after all.

#MySundaySnapshot - Moon Gazing 13/52 (2020)

“I blame you for the moonlit sky
And the dream that died
With the eagles’ flights
I blame you for the moonlit nights
When I wonder why
Are the seas still dry
Don’t blame this sleeping satellite”

Sleeping Satellite – Tasmin Archer

    What a beautiful photo. This lockdown is hard and I’m grateful that we can still get outside for exercise every day. Like you, I’m also very grateful for my garden right now!

      The weather I feel is about to change sadly. I’m hoping I’m wrong

    This is beautiful. I’d have gone crazy without our garden, it’s makes a difference having somewhere to play in fresh air
