From the yard

Here are a couple of pics from my yard, and the neighbors yard. The hummingbird moth didn't take much notice of me. I've always liked black eyed susans. They're so cheerful and summery.

These Pics were taken at a Balloon Festival in Greenville NY. It cost about 4 hours for us to hang around and see them on our way back home from our mini-vacation in New England. We got in about 2 am... I thought it was worth it. They launched about a dozen balloons near dusk. It was a little hazier than I would have liked, but... what was i gonna do?

Near the end of launches


Lift off!


I think this was the most famous balloon there

up, up and away

I think this was the Lime Green Ricky Balloon...

The POW-MIA balloon got going first and off the ground first

again at Portland light house, flags waving, kind of cool!
