The leaves are just starting to turn colors here in the Bronx.  The weather has been so very unpredictable.

This Dogwood in my front garden was planted by my Dad over 50 years ago. The fog has been very thick here the last few days.

Its September 2011 ~


“The foliage has been losing its freshness
through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf
shows itself like the first gray hair
amidst the locks of a beauty
who has seen one season too many.”
–   Oliver Wendell Holmes

The Summer 2011 flew by.!!

The garden this year did not fair so well, with the humidity and rain, the tomatoes rotted on the vine, yet, the herbs did fabulous. But then, they always do.!

Not to mention Hurricane Irene, flooding everywhere, fires in Texas. My thoughts and prayers for all those that were in the path of this destruction. 

The ten year anniversary of 9/11 is coming up. Let us never forget those that have lost their lives and those survivors that are now ill from the after effects of working down at ‘Ground Zero’.

All orders $50.00 or more will be receiving this Terra Cotta Stone w/ 5 ml of our Time Out Diffuser Blend to honor ‘9/11′ .. until supplies run out. Please put in the “comments section’ at check out ‘FB 9/11’ so that we can include this with your order.

What’s New: 

Nutmeg CO2 is just mouth watering and reminds me of eggnog at the Holidays.!

Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.’
