wonderful pictures. I'm a little jealous - it's grey and miserable here but not yet cold enough for all the goldern colours to come out.

So gorgeous! OMG You just read my mind- yesterday I was digging through itunes trying to find MORE Sara Bareilles music. I am one of her newest fans, well, I can't say that...I have been a huge fan of her cover of "On the dock of the bay" for some time now. It is the best ever!

Happy Labor day! xoxo

Candi said...

Love the late summer blooms! Even though most of the flowers have "peaked", there are still some late stragglers :) Oh and I love to cook Bitter Melon Omelette ever now and again ;)
