En forårsdag, da tulipanerne rigtig blomstrede, kiggede Lilla op i æbletræet, og så en ballon, der var filtret ind i træets grene.
Purple untangled the strin, but instead op the balloon slowly carrying Purple down from the tree it started drifting upwards!
He became afraid. And down under the apple tree all the other Droplets stood, calling Purple's name.
All the other Droplets climbed the apple tree until they could ract Purple, and then they slowly pulled him and the balloon down to the solid earth.
|De tøjrede ballonen til en tulipan og gik i seng.|
All the other Droplets found it to be a grand idea. Yellow and Purple found some strings whish they tied into a net over the balloon. Red had a big basket, which he brougth on a mini-skateboard.
Green asked if he should help carry the basket. "No thanks," Red answered. "This is much easier than carrying it."
Udsigten var meget smuk. De svævede op over forfatterens hus, så de kunne se det røde tag og lugte røgen fra skorstenen. "Nej se," sagde Blå, "vi kan se vejrhanen på kirketårnet derovre, bag ved vores æbletræ!."
"Oh look," Blue said. We can see the weather cock at the church on the hill, behind our apple tree."
"Get away, ugly monster!" Green screamed, and slashed after the wasp with a loose rope. That was a stupid idea. He scared the wasp, and it stung the balloon with its stinger, making a little hole.
The air went out os the balloon with a long, loud sound, and the balloon with the Droplets slowly fell from the skies.
Heldigvis sad ballonen igen fast i æbletræets grene, så de landede i god behold i forfatterens have.
