Let’s go fly a kite Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!
* (from Mary Poppins)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog ……

  2. Gorgeous kites. It's so neat to see all the unusual shapes and sizes. I remember the old paper kits from when I was a kid. Never see those anymore. Hugs, Marty

  3. Susan,

    The kites are beautiful but the words to the song in Mary Poppins made my memory fast track back!! My best friend Gigi & I used to swing on the backyard swingset singing that song at the top of our lungs (we were about eight), and somehow it felt so good as the swing soared upward!

    As they say "Thanks for the memories!"

  6. We love Mary Poppins at our house and we love flying kites at the beach every summer. So much more fun than fighting with kites in the midwestern burbs! Trees, light poles, lack of wind some days...you get the picture!

    Blessings to you from Kansas

  15. Susan, Love the Kites....There was an area in Galveston were people went to fly their kites and you could take a lesson in learning to fly those big kites and they could make them to wonderful things. Thanks for the memory.

  25. What a nice post! I don't see kites, even simple ones, often these days. New kites were always a gift from the Easter Bunny when my boys were little.

  37. Kites look so inviting when I see them flying in the air. I've never been able to succesfully fly one. I never got the key points to keeping them up.

  39. Susan,
    This is my first visit to your lovely blog. I have enjoyed strolling through your posts and beautiful photos. I am an avid gardener, so gardening photos always catch my eye. Your flower images took my breath away....especially the one of a forest floor blanketed in bluebells.....enchanting.

    Thank you for visiting me, and for your kind comments. I look forward to my next visit.

    Best Wishes,
    Kay
