The balloon itself is filled with hot air pretty fast. They had to wait a little, because when it stood up a kind of wind rushed through this small valley and the hull started to crank from one side to the other pretty steep. And they waited for some passengers. I think I took the first picture 18:45 and the last maybe 19:20. They can lift off really fast. They prefer this small valley as starting place because it is nearly round and closed. This freak wind rush was kind of unusual, so normally you can get your Montgolfiere upright undisturbed. what a delight, sugar! thanks for answering so quickly. xoxox Your front lawn? Do you live in a mansion?I’ve watched a balloon convention before. Pretty amazing.Sx That is some front lawn! Great pictures. It is something that I would like to do. Being above it all and slowly look around. I have seen shows about balloons but never saw one close. A loaf of bread,some cheese and something to drink while on the trip. Dream way to spend a day. What a cool thing to watch! You must be on the mountain side to have a view like that, Mago. Riding in a balloon is definitely on my list of things to do in this lifetime. Thanks! xoxo Thanks, Mago. Front lawn? I’m dropping in for a bit of tea. And the view, thank you. 🙂 Cool! Often when I’m going in the morning I’ll see balloons flying on the horizon. I am envious of your back yard! Or front lawn. see how well I pay attention? Wow. I love the view from your front lawn. When you next are free for a foot rub, can I come over to yours to have it done? I’ll bring a couple of bottles of red. ScarletI live in a large house, but I would not call it manorial. It’s more the servant’s wing. JoyceYes, it must be a real satisfying experience: It is quiet, no wind and what a view! Limited only by the daylight and the amount of combustible the vehicle can carry. One day … PonitaDon’t get fooled with that view – here is absolutely no mountain. It’s just like looking into the inside of a cup and the house I am in is on the other side, on top of the edge. Austere🙂 Tea and sympathy. I’ll ask Amanda about tea and tea preparing … and I’d need advice what tea to use? The seeminly simple can become complicated or at least full od ideas and relations, a result of reduction. CheesemeisterHere they very often go/start in the afternoon. Backyard, frontlawn – depends from where you look. They grow good wine there too. I hope you can get enough sleep m’dear. RosesYou are welcome! 🙂 What kind of red do you prefer? I’m rather partial to a drop of Merlot, though I will never sniff at a Shiraz. But I will happily bring something else if you prefer? It’s years since I tasted a Merlot. You need to have a sip of Regent, Domina, Trollinger and Burgunder. Franconia grows traditionally white sorts as Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus; once a while white burgundy or Traminer. A rich variety of tastes. Some sorts with funny names like “Lump”, “Teufelskeller”, “Hummelberg”. Hope you are well. Is this a promotional balloon for some company or organization (Marktkauf)? “Marktkauf” is a brand, they sell food and non-food. And they have a small balloon-flotilla in Germany. The link is damned long – when you go to “marktkauf.de”, scroll down to “entertainment” on the left, under this klick is “Ballonflotte” and you can see pictures: http://www.marktkauf.de/index.php?t_cont=http://www.marktkauf.de/cms/index.php?id=220&menu_navi=navi=Entertainment&left_navi=220 Did someone mention tea? 🙂 Just came back from the tea store with half a kilo of my favorite poison. So tiring. I should just set up a Lastschriftverfahren for every 2 months and be done with it. PS. Nice lawn. Kyrie and my neighbors dog Murphy are both retty easy going, but the hot air balloons that go over our neighborhood in the summers really freak them out. It’s that whole “whoosh-shhhhh” sounds when they feed the fire to rise. They are often flying really low too, just above the tree tops. Wow, you have a great front lawn! AmandaYou could buy it säckeweise … NimhSome balloneers want to show their skill doing that. And when you fire it up you get a really steep lift upwards. You can even tree-hop. KahlessMy gardeners take care … MJPfff, Versailles! Stinky place! had to be cleaned and desinfected once a year … I live just under Mrs. Igor. lucky you!
