Blue Sky and Hot Air Balloons over the Garden Courtyard…
Thursday morning I wrote a post showing the entry to the Shady Lawn Antiques Garden Courtyard. Friday morning I was greeted by the same brilliant blue sky and also by hot air Balloons flying over the SL Courtyard.
I was not too surprised by the balloons because it was the weekend of the 38th annual Walla Walla Hot Air Balloon Stampede. Each Balloon Stampede is a little different due to different weather and wind conditions. The balloons seem to almost always fly over our house but less frequently they will fly over Shady Lawn.
Here is a view of the Balloons over the Courtyard.
Then one of the Balloons dropped down lower in the sky.
I thought that the pilot would fire his burners and go back up. Instead he landed in the field directly across from SL.
Here is a picture of the Balloon looking back toward Shady Lawn. The Rees and Sumach Community Garden is actually in between the Balloon and SL.
