Outdoor Wednesday




Outdoor Wednesday is being brought to you by Susan, A Southern Daydreamer. I trust you enjoy my special outdoor showing today.




All the following pictures were made by my neighbor. They attended the Albuquerque, N.Mex. hot air balloon show this past week. He very kindly shared these beautiful balloons with me. There were too many to share them all with you.

Ms LV, they are so gorgeous! I have been to hot air balloon festivals but the weather was not coopeerating so I have never seen as many as these flying at the same time!

Hi LV,
Enjoyed your hot air balloon photos. I had a chance for a ride in one about 15 years ago and was too chicken!! (Don't like flying either!)

Hiya!! What a great event you got to experience!

Long ago we had some festivals near where we lived and it was such a delight.

Thanks for reminding me of those fun days.

If you have a moment — I would love you to stop by and say hi!

TTFN~~ Claudia ♥ ♥

LV, did you see the mishap at the festival this year? They were playing it on the TV last week (when husband was in the hospital). It was scary! Someone fell right out of the little basket!!! But was okay.

I think that daisy is my favorite balloon.

I attended a balloon festival in upstate NY in August. There were not as many as in NM. I love the ones that are in fun shapes. Once I saw one of Malcolm Forbes balloons shaped like Noah's Arc fly over my house. Perhaps I will ride in one sometime.

Those are lovely balloons! I especially like the flower. I have never gotten to attend a hot air balloon festival. I would love too.

Beth at Aunties said...

Such a colorful and happy post! The balloons are sort of magical to me to fly high above the towns.
Park City has a show here in Utah but we have never attended. I think I am going to place it on my bucket list!

LV,

These balloons pictures are breath-taking and beautiful. So many different kinds and it makes you wonder how they can all fly!

These are just wonderful photos. I've always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. I have to stop talking about this and actually do it.

Hello LV,

What fabulous photos! I love hot air balloons! The flower face one is just too cute! Just looking at it makes me smile! My cousin who lives in New Mexico has gone to that show a few times. I am hoping when I visit him next year that we will be able to go.

Thank you for sharing them with us!
