Peach Fuzz

Oh glorious time of the summer. Those golden days where it is sunny and warm.

OK, maybe not today. It is warm but there is very little sun. In fact we might just get some rain.

But, it is the time of year when my favorite fruit is available…..


And oh I love the fact that I don’t have to live in Georgia (yet) to get really good peaches. I just have to drive 20 minutes away to Monroe Orchard and they have already done all the hard work for me.  Monroe Orchard might have been where I went a wee bit overboard with the strawberries.

IMG_8167A Oh look at them, all spread out on the counter. They aren’t quite ripe, just a couple of days and then they will be perfect. So until that time they have to be spread out on my counter, taunting me with the smell and the promise.

Peach juice running down my chin.

Is there anything better?

IMG_8158AOh fine, I did manage to find one peach that was almost ripe. So close that I just couldn’t stand it.

I had to have it.

There was no stopping me.

IMG_8166A  But having a peach reminds me of this song. So enjoy. And then go out and get some peaches. And in a few days we will talk about things like peach jam, peach/blueberry jam, peach cobbler, peach chutney…….

I am drooling.


  1. Ohhhh, Once upon a time (like 7 years ago) we lived close to a roadside stand called the Peach Pit. Peaches ripe from the tree. It was glorious. Now we live where peaches have to be trucked in 1800 miles. It will never be the same. And I am going to my room now to cry.

  2. I could not figure out where that song was going and how it could possibly include peaches! hehehe, take care of my hair brush!

    Your photos are so deliciously bright. Their soft orange color is so beautiful!

  3. Yum! I'm salivating! A good friend has a very prolific peach tree in her yard and has offered to give some to us because they can't eat them all--I hope she comes through!

  4. That song is going to be stuck in my head for days!

    I can't even remember the last time I had a peach. But I will get some in honor of you.
