Backyard July 2015

This Hot Air Balloon flew across the yard of our neighbor in the back.  Notice the flame.  We could hear the flame heat up the air under the balloon.  The photos are a bit foggy because it was very humid and the camera lens became coated with the mist.


















































If you look closely at where the tiny yellow flowers are missing you can see the sunflower seeds.  There was a breeze so the image is not crystal clear the way I like it.



This is where we planted our Red Cypress vine last year and it's starting to come back.


It's growing along the driveway/garage seam.  A seed must have been blown there where it planted itself.  Maybe it was a bird or squirrel.

  6. That hot air balloon is impressive but I will be honest with you, it is the red star like flower of that red cypress vine that makes my heart sing! And the shadow of the flower is beautiful too!
