We've been living in the new place since December (so I guess I can hardly call it the 'new' place anymore) and just a couple weeks ago I finally got around to decorating our balcony with a new cafe set and bunch of plants. It was the prettiest balcony in our square! And then the heat wave came and now all but one of the plants are just about dead. :/
It's not supposed to be 100 degrees in San Jose!
In related news, a dove has chosen to nest in one of the dead hanging plants... guess I won't be replacing that one. I'll take a picture tomorrow if I can do it without scaring it away. :)
