nyc flowers & veggies

i had no idea where to start so i'll take the easy way out and post more pics and less words. also, though our trip started in toronto, i'll start with nyc.

as we spent only 3 nights in the city we had quite a tight schedule. i managed to sneak out the first morning to union square with elizabeth. i so envy her for being able to shop fresh produce at the green market

elizabeth got one of the small lilac ones for her tree stump. wonder if it still there, or if someone stole it!?

this truck was laden with flowers of all sorts, not at the market but on w. 25th on my way back to hotel

the smell was amazing

tomatoes then, there were all sizes...


...some even looked like they might be past their prime. i guess heirlooms are supposed to look like this

so many interesting jams and jellies

hmm, these were something neither of us had seen before, and i've forgotten what they are. they are supposed to be nice and eaten raw as they come, now i wish i had bought some to try

we both liked how the light played on these aubergines

such a pretty shade of red

i must have taken a dozen or more pictures of gourds/pumpkins/squashes

so many colors, shapes and textures

regretfully i didn't get to meet buster on this trip, maybe next time!
