I LOVE the snowman!!!!! That would be perfect for here in Tampa this past week. :) Happy WW!

Titanium said...

Now I've got "99 Red Balloons" earworm-ing about in my head :)

I love the color contrast...

Wordless -- and breathless! Beautiful balloon, wonderful kitschy snow lady.

I totally love this, both that amazing red balloon and your whimsical snow-babe with her flamingo escorts.
Thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog about celebrating 4 years as a mad blogger. I can't remember when I started reading your blog exactly--I probably found it through Blotanical, or through someone's set of links in their sidebar--and it took me a while to remember to leave comments whenever possible. Here's to more years of blogging fun for both of us.

Well, you couldn't get more contrasting photos then these two... I love the bright red balloon against the blue sky. I am speechless about the snow woman...;-)

Kate said...

Thx, Spice and Titanium - very nice to meet you! I'm heading over to check out your Wordless Wednesday posts right now...

I found you on twitter, love the post especially the snowgirl!!

Kate said...

Hi, Granny;
It's sort of a tradition around here to decorate our snowbabes to announce people's birthdays...

Kate said...

Hi, Jodi!
Oh, my pleasure! I have always enjoyed visiting your blog -- you have so many beautiful flowers growing in your garden. But, you're making me feel old. :) Have we really been bloggin' for 4 years???

The red balloon happened to be flying by. I shot that from the deck of my house.

The crazy snowbabe was just sitting in somebody's front yard as I was walking to the post office.

Both seemed like good, goofy candidates for a Wordless Wednesday. :D

Kate said...

Thx, Noelle - Yes, she's a pretty sexy snow-woman :)

Kate said...

Hi, Dragonfly!
Thanks for stopping by. Heading over to check out your WW post right now... :)

Wow! If I lived where you live, I would never get anything done, because I would be forever looking out the window! Great snow babe, too!

Shady Gardener said...

Kate, The first photo absolutely took my breath away! Wordless for sure. :-) The second made me laugh... is it really snow?? ha. I may have to do some alterations to my snowman tomorrow!

Kate said...

Hi, Jan & Shady!
It's time we got a few snowbabes into the act. No sense in snow men having all the fun...

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Kate~~ Very cool!

fairegarden said...

That a red balloon like that just happened to fly by is amazing to me, Kate. The hula girl snowchick is amazing as well. Aloha! :-)

Hi, Grace and Frances;
I live in kind of an odd place. Lots of ballooners in the huge meadow across from my home. One collided with the house a few years back!

Rose said...

Love the red balloon! Looks like you are having beautiful blue skies. The snowlady is pretty cute, too:)

Liisa said...

Beautiful photo of the red balloon, Kate. What a perfect day for a ride in a balloon. And, what a sexy snowlady!!

joey said...

Love it, love it ... love both shots, Kate!

Kate said...

Hi, Rose, Liisa, & Joey!
I'm glad you like Betty. She makes me smile. I keep telling myself that I have go do a balloon ride. Never been!

Thanks for stopping by. :)

I love the picture with the red ballon! I've never seen a snowperson decked out in hulu regalia before. :)
