Veggies etc

Em was right, I really can't keep away....

Autumn is so stunningly abundant and thrilling. I think I must be very old to be thrilled by vegetation - but I am. So there. The top left of this collage is drying up beach vines on Long Island. The other pictures are from Union Square where the food addicts congregate.

A plethora of pumpkins and gourds - each prettier than the next.

For some reason the green leafy things reminded me of 'under the sea' and curling billows and froth...

Look at the savoy's wrinkles.

Look at the 'hats' on the eggplants - especially the black ones at the top.

Back to frothy and purple and green...

Pears have such a very satisfactory shape.

These poor, sad, speckly, funny unsprayed apples have lots of charm...

as do the Winesaps I bought home.

Urban fruits from roof garden. October....roses, lavender and dill.

My other blog is here.


  1. I don't need to look at the Savoy's wrinkles - I can see them in the mirror!
    There seems to be a plethora of fruit and veg there, just as there is here. Everyone has so many apples that we are all putting them out at the gate with help yourself notices (to no avail). Ours are on the whole not keepers so we are full of stewed apples (apple pie has too many calories)

  2. Yummy YUM! No reason to eat things that bleed with all of that lovely produce! Gorgeous colours, YUM! Like painting your insides! Glad to see this post!
    Dexter threw up and fell over but he is OK...sends a lame wiggle to you and Buster.

  3. Hoorah! Lovely to have you back. Beautiful pictures of course!

  4. Yes's grand to see you back about New York.

    The farmers market has displays at this time of the year that catch my eyes and feed me, and make me wish to return again and again.

    When I get back to the city I do hope to visit the wonderful market with you again ... before Halloween. I will surely have to take a little pumpkin home with me.


  5. I love seeing the colours and shapes of your market photos Elizabeth.
    The produce is very good quality!

  6. Like Em, I love your out and About New York blog so I am very happy to see you here today.
    Fall is truly a beautiful time.

    cheers, parsnip

  7. Those photos are gorgeous. Those pears, especially the ones on the left, look delicious. Fat, juicy and ready to burst in your mouth. Loved this post, really did. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  8. I am glad to have you back!
    Gorgeous photos as always!

  9. Simply and ordinarily gorgeous veggies are. I appreciate them a lot too, and maybe I, too, am growing old. Your still lifes with dishes, produce and flowers are just lovely.

    After a rather stilted childhood it wasn't until I was well into adulthood that I discovered the sensuality of fruits and vegetables. :)

  10. Elizabeth, I love this harvest of photographs, colors of autumn... I can almost smell them. Thank you for sharing such delight!

  11. I love your photos. I am so glad you are back-I really enjoy this Blog.

  12. Just stunning.

    I too wish that a book could be produced of Dave King's work, I hope the family can do it. I am pleased you liked my wee poem.x

  13. I just love Autumn! Your photos are lovely.

  14. I am so glad you are back. My son lives in New York and I kept up with weather and your wonderful photos as a way of knowing what it is like there every day.

  15. Great that you are back. I always kept an update on weather and the atmosphere in New York as one of my sons is studying there The other is in Vienna so sometimes you even had a blog on Vienna which was fabulous.
    Look forward to more. Your photos are so colourful.
