Tanabata has become of a little family tradition. Brother person got into celebrating Tanabata with his girlfriend. I ended up joining in the fun, along with my mother. For those not up to date with the fun, Tanabata is known as the Star Festival in Japan. The celestial deities Orihime and Hikoboshi are together at last.

Today I went to check up on my lovely bell peppers and I was delighted to see that I had two fruits. It is the first time all my toils have yielded fruit, both in the figurative and in the literal sense. In celebration of it, I took two photos of my lovely Bell peppers. For my little crop, the tropical storm was a blessing. The winds helped my bell pepper plants get pollinated. Look at how cute they look. They are simply little darlings. I wish more folks would know the joy of growing tiny little plants. Being a...
