We are very lucky to be on a flight path for hot air balloons. I think they launch somewhere near Crich (not totally sure) and we often see them rising up from over the hills and then they drift closer and closer , sometimes coming over the house , sometimes just wandering past on the horizon.
 I have always loved hot air balloons , and so the kids have also taken a keen interest , getting very excited when they come near.
 Last Saturday saw the lady bird coming our way , so I nipped out to take some pics.

 It came pretty much right over the house , so I got some nice shots .
 It really looks like it has a big mouth , eating the flames ,lol

A great sight just before bed time , for the kids . We get other balloons too , but the lady bird is a favourite.

Thanks for dropping by ,
