Maybe it's the soft fuzz of the skin or the sweet nectar that is in every delicious bite.
Perhaps it's that they are only ripe and fresh for a very short time so they are a luxurious treat.
Nothing says summer like fresh fruit.
I love the variety of fruits and berries that are available in season.
Did you know that peaches are even better when they have been grilled?
A simple summer dessert is to serve them grilled with a dollop of Greek coconut yogurt or ice cream.
Your guests will be begging for more!
I'm going to savour the flavour
serve these with my afternoon tea.
Crabtree and Evelyn cream works wonders on my garden weary hands.
Evelyn is Mother's middle name
I like the sound of it as it rolls off the tongue.
I wore this peachy Teenflo Silk dress and black Hue capri tights
when I met a friend for lunch at Steeples in Shawnigan Lake.
I have had this quartz necklace for several years
I purchased it from Fabrications in Duncan.
If you have never shopped there
Run Don't Walk!
My OPI Pompeii Purple toes clash with my dress
I fear the Fashion Police will be arresting me soon!
But they may have written me off as I have been so into the home and garden lately.
Gardens Illustrated has arrived!
I can't wait to see the gardens and plantings that always inspire.
I am fascinated by espaliered trees and peaches are perfect growing against a sunny wall.
Wouldn't it be decadent to have a tree heavily laden with fruit ripe for the picking?
Is there a seasonal fruit that you delight in devouring?
Tish Jett who writes a fabulous blog makes a wish every time she takes her first bite of a fruit or berry in season.
I like that idea and think I might adopt that measure.
Just thinking of a wish fills me with hope and promise.
One does a whole painting for one peach and people think just the opposite - that particular peach is but a detail.
