Yesterday I was working at home and opened the window for some cool fresh morning air. I hear this noise. Sounded like air being blown into or around something. It was pretty consistant, so I go to investigate. I am looking around and I notice the dog looking up. So I do too and this is what I saw!!
Actually when I first saw it the balloon was a LOT closer and BIGGER. It seemed like it was at the roof tops. Anyway, I ran in the house grabbed my camera, yelled at my hubby and headed back to take some pictures. I hate to report that the balloon seemed to lose altitude and I am not sure if it did not land in the park nearby - it was headed in that general direction. I was on company time, so I did not go and investigate. I live a few miles north of a state park that sometimes has balloon races. I have not heard of any race, so maybe balloonists also use the park at other times.
Then later in the day when I went down for coffee, what did I see but this - see the tiny leaves to the left of the dime??
There are little bumps in the soil where I think I planted the other two bulbs, so maybe they will pop up soon too and I will have a touch of spring just in time for the summer solstice. Sounds good to me!
Oh I just love hot air balloons! Years ago when my kids were little balloons went over our house almost weekly...whenever we could we would all pile into the car and 'chase' them. It was so much fun trying to guess which road was going to take us the right way to follow those balloons. Many times we managed to find them at their landing sites and watch the touchdown and dismantalling of the balloons! It was great fun!
Yeah on the daffodils!
