Our study of honey concludes this week with the quiet image studies of photographer Chia Chong. On Tuesday, floral designer, Ashley Bailey, shares a design sprouting from an amber-colored honey-flower adorned vase. Thursdays are for eating and this Thursday is no exception with a recipe by Libbie Summers for honey cooked pork belly sandwich fit for a king and a president. The weekend concludes with beautiful, silly and informative behind-the-scenes shots that show the inner workings of our little hive during these three weeks. Sit back and get sticky heat.

We descend upon the Lee Family Farm in Bulloch County at sunrise, the sleep still in the corners of our citified eyes as the bright sun cuts across the horizon. It’s eerie and beautiful—in the distance, a few workers dot the fields in meditative labor, looking like solitary statues emerging from a thick blanket of silencing fog.
