I chased this all over the place. I tried to get just the right amount of ballast for floating, but slight breeze played havoc.
Both sons and their families (and grand daughter) were here for my birthday. Very thankful for a memorable happy birthday.

    thanks for the comments and well wishes!!
yes, it is a neglected back yard with a few projects in waiting. i thought i could blame it all on the hurricane matthew but furleo may know better. the palms did take a beating and lot of fence came down. i did have all the ground clear but now a few rains and stuff is starting to grow like crazy. i'll be motivated now to do something back there and share an 'after' photo sometime soon i hope.

    All you need is a few more of these and a lawn chair and you can get us some shots for the next challenge. ;-)

The scenery makes me think of Palm Springs. Close?

    There's nothing like celebrating the good times with family and friends when you've been through a life altering experience. It's a lesson to us all - enjoy every day.

    This made me smile - but only because of the jolly balloon (in the shade) surrounded by a bleak landscape create such a juxtaposition.

    Happy Belated Birthday!!! Kudos for being able to get out and shoot something! I can see you are a bit out of practice, as the white balance is off a bit!!! Thanks for sharing a happy photo with us!!!
