In the corner of my eye I spotted a couple of balloons blowing through our unobstructed front yard.

Damn, I thought, that would have made a perfect random blog image. Too late!

Later that day:


I spot a balloon in the back yard. Behind one of our two maybe-next-year-yielding avocado trees, snuggled next to an aloe vera plant, on the other side of which a bedraggled horseradish plant from Syd and Gundy, and comfrey, with its amazing healing properties.


The next day, I spot two more, tied together, in the corner. And one inside the barbacoa. Its door had been open all day.

All went back over the wall to the neighbor’s girls.
