This time of year is all about spices, from warming mulled wine infused with cinnamon and star anise to clove-studded roasts and gingerbread cookies. So I decided to spice things up with a few spice-inspired photographs. First up, an array of spices from farmers’ markets in New York…
…and bustling bazaars in Turkey.
Spicy (in more ways than one) sauces at a roadside stop in Montana.
Gingerbread fairytale castles in Seattle.
Last but not least, a little culinary experiment I’ve been conducting; growing turmeric on the windowsill. I have yet to harvest any of the bright yellow spice, but the leaves are pretty enough to warrant window space all by themselves.

I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversations. – George Bernard Shaw
His voice was cloves and nightingales, it took us to spice markets in the Celebs, we drifted with him on a houseboat beyond the Coral Sea. – Janet Fitch (White Oleander)
