Hot Air Balloons from our backyard

We live in an area where hot air balloons are frequently seen, but usually too high to get a good shot. This was an especially foggy day and the balloons stayed low so they could still see the ground. I was fortunate enough to get this great shot from our backyard.

My latest hat - a cotton crusher. Even though the brim LOOKS firm, it's only the edge being held firm by nylon trimmer line (like in your lawn edge trimmer) It's VERY comfortable - yes, I'm working on the pattern - which will be a very easy project.
