Loving this weather

It's such a beautiful day today. Of course, I worked but at least I worked from home where I could open my windows and doors and listen to the wind blow through my bamboo windchime. The cats love staring through the screen at bits of leaves and other plant debris that seemingly crawl across the pavement and spark their imagination.

The plants are doing very well. As you can see, we have quite a few tomato plants. What can I say? We love tomatoes. The bell pepper plant is doing great too, but I'm unfamiliar with this type of plant so I'm not sure if it's as big as it should be. I had just finished watering them in this picture, usually there isn't any water on the ground.

We also have a few hanging planters on the fence. This year we decided to put a plant similar to an ice plant (but with tiny purple flowers) in them. Since the planters can't seem to hold water and every other plant we had in them died from dehydration, we figure these little guys should do really well. After all, they seem to thrive in this dry climate.
I'm loving this weather. Not too hot and not too cold at 75 degree's with a nice breeze - it's perfect!

I like bell peppers... I've been eating them a lot lately in a salad that I love - with feta cheese, kalamata olives and red onions. MMMMMMMMM!
