Early on the morning of July 5th, I found this right on the edge of our very dry wheat field – a God-Bless-America Chinese lantern!
It is by the grace of God that it didn’t burn the entire field. There was black ash on the metal framework inside the lantern, evidence of its live flame.
Chinese lanterns are beautiful to see – but oh, please be careful of your surroundings when you send one off into the air!
It should also be noted that they really are the worst kind of littering as well. 😦
