Dahlen, Dahlias...darling....

Sugar overdose? Well, it is it at least organic...

This is the wonderful Sienna Dahlen performing a set of mostly her own music at Tequila Bookworm.

Ethereal, atmospheric...more art song but beautiful nonetheless.

With her are on violin are Jaren Freeman-Fox and visiting from Lugano, Switzerland on guitar Roberto Pianca (via New York)

Seen at the scene: Chris Gale (whose bad had the next set) Ben Dietschi, Nathan Hiltz, newlyweds Sophia Perlman and Adrean Farrugia. Sophia was also at Louisa LaBarbera's fab jewellery sale/open house/shmooze on Friday...I picked up some Majorca pearl drops - simple and classic and fun turquoise and cream earrings...shaped like a tiny ship's wheel.

These beauties...which are actually a deep burgundy are from my local farmer's market..where there is a cornucopia (love that word) of produce these days....cherries, raspberries, peaches, greens, beans, and all kinds of other colourful and nutritious items - it's very easy to eat the rainbow as they say.

I love dahlias and any big showy flower: peonies, gerbera daisies, stargazer lilies...I admired many fine flowered yards on my way home yesterday between Ossington and Shaw...

For lunch? Fresh corn! I personally am enjoying the summer, not finding it cool at all...but very comfortable and just right...not too hot, not too cold...

Only 3 more sleeps til my Western journey...
