Daily Farm Photo: 11/8/05

Did the Goblins get them?

Mother Nature places very few things in the forest that are bright white: freshly fallen snow, a few types of wildflowers, a glimpse of a cloud through the trees. If something white catches your eye at this time of year, it's most likely an unsightly piece of litter, like a styrofoam cup.

But the other day it was this Halloween balloon, hanging from a tree way back in the woods off the driveway and swaying quietly in the breeze. We don't get any trick-or-treaters out here.

Or do we?

  1. Wow, what a cool balloon! I've never seen one like that. Probably left over from the wild Halloween party the farm animal had while you were sleeping :)

  2. Ooh, that's a little too "Blair Witch" for me.

  3. That is kinda spooky and therefore perfect for Halloween. Too bad it's not one of those message-in-a-bottle balloons. Did anyone besides me and my siblings do that? You know, write on a balloon with a permanent marker, "If you find this balloon, please call ______. Have a nice day!"

    We were stoopid kids. I'd never let the girls do something that unsafe.

  4. That is a cool balloon. Makes me wish that we had some for Halloween! Very egg-sac-ish.

  5. That wasn't part of your Halloween decor? It is a really cool balloon!

  6. It's a BEAUTIFUL balloon to be used all year round in my house to scare away all my spiders...but it would probably just attract them instead..anyway it's a beautiful balloon...

  7. What a great balloon, though my litteman would probably be scared of it cause he doesnt like spiders.

    I enjoy looking at your pics.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Hugs Suz

  8. Cool. I bet some wee little goblin was mighty upset when it floated away!
