Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Rosh Hashanah Edition

Inspired by a movie:
Secret Life of Bees? A tradition we have for Rosh Hashanah is to find unique honey flavors to dip our apples into. This year, pepper honey, a very complex but sweet flavor. And our favorite! The rare, meadowfoam honey. It's honey from the pollen of a marshmellow plant! AMAZING!

It wouldn't be Rosh Hashanah without Honey Bee Cookies. A lovely and delicious shade of brown.

It was super hazy and foggy a few mornings ago, and while the web is the focus, I love the hazy mist on the field behind it.

Coffee or Tea:
Eating pomegranate seeds is another tradition. It's said that they should have 613 seeds, the same number as commandments. My favorite tea is a Yogi Pomegranate Green tea, sweet and healthy!

Honey, lingering on a spoon. My the sweetness of the new year linger and continue to sweeten our year!

Tamar, these are just wonderful! I never knew about the connection between the holiday and honey, so I learned something too :). That last shot of the honey is just marvelous, I love how the light frames the spoon and honey. Great job! And happy holiday :)
