And a few other pics for the second ATOP gallery.
I was talking with my friend today and said I don’t think I use the word atop in my everyday vocabulary. But I seem to have a few photos from the archives that illustrate it.

My friend, blog follower and frequent commenter, Sue R, told me she saw some Chrysanthemums that looked like Cauliflower. I said, WHERE?
She couldn’t remember exactly but I know she sent me here somehow. I found them.
There they were right on a front lawn. I couldn’t believe it. Thanks Sue!
and I did get out of the car for the second shot. Are these the ones you were referring to. Sue?
In February, I’ll be filled with Nostalgia for a vine ripened summer tomato. You can taste the sun. A little salt and freshly ground pepper bring out the flavor.
My sister bought this one at the Union Square market today. Booths were filled with pumpkins, gourds and jugs of apple cider.
There’s no replacement for a summer tomato.

Here’s one jar of the thirty pounds of honey she harvested with the help of two fellow bee experts.
They brought their extractor with them to show and teach her how to harvest the honey.
She shared the honey with them and learned how to do it herself but was best with the team. (I’m sorry I don’t recall how long it took but a few hours.)
