Thank you again for all your good wishes before we went on our blogging break and we hope you had a good week too.

These images were taken a couple of nights ago when the moon had a lovely glow.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday and happy moon-gazing when we see the full moon tomorrow,

with love from Xenia xxx
