Skywatch Friday

My dear friend turned 50 and hosted
a fabulous dining experience for her close friends.
Shortly before we sat down to feast on duck and chicken,
I snuck out into her gorgeous backyard
and caught these lanterns swaying gently
in the soft spring breeze...

Amazing pictures you have here (nice to see how it looks like in Peru!!) I do like the lanterns - they are as if laced with different styles of decorations.

Lovely laterns. Bet they look magical when they have candles in them

The textures on the glass pieces look so touchable. Duck is so good, but I've always felt weird eating an animal that I find to be awesome. Like capybara or guinea pig.
