It’s early in the wee small hours and the coming dawn is filled with birdsong as I write this. That first peep of daylight is something magical, although I’m not often up early enough to see the dawn, so I thought I’d dedicate this week’s theme to all things early, starting with a photo that captures two of my favourite things; the dawn of a new day and the beginning of a new adventure – daybreak from an airplane window.
Early signs of life, fossils etched in stone – in this instance a close up of the Witness Trees in Seattle.
Early birds claiming the best seats for New York’s St. Patrick’s’ Day Parade. The parade wasn’t due to start for hours, I hope they brought coffee.
Some of the earliest signs of springtime in the Irish countryside, clumps of barely yellow wild primroses.

I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm. – Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Early morning cheerfulness can be extremely obnoxious. – William Feather
