A Grand Passion

you know how beautiful the perfectly ripe peach smells,
the peach that just reaches out for your hand,
the one you must eat right that very minute?

well, one of my girlfriends brought over an entire flat of those yummy things yesterday.

she found a deal,
the entire box for $5

every single peach, perfection,
the entire house smells like fresh peaches.

too too wonderful....

I remember one year, as we were driving through Italy,  my husband's passion for peaches
overcame good sense, we stopped on the roadside and he bought as many as he could carry.

they smelled delicious too.

I just had to eat one in the car.
peach juice all over my Armani outfit, I arrived at some wonderful hotel looking like I had been
wearing the same outfit for a week...he just explained why...and they all died laughing.

it's a passion, isn't it?

I would go pretty far for fresh ripe peaches too- they are my absolute favorite fruit. Peach Bellinis, peach pie, peach anything... Those pictures make me hungry, I'm going to go have a peach. :) N.G.

My peach tree is loaded. I have been making peach jam every night and am wondering who I shall give all these wonderful jams to. The peaches don't last very long and you are correct...they smell divine!

Just had to laugh; I'd say a fragrant Italian peach is worth it, and thankfully Italians have the sense of humor to have a laugh along with you, Bella~

YUM! I laughed imagining you in the car with peach juice flying, savoring every minute. One of my favorite fruits...made peach sangria yesterday, my favorite summer drink!

I share your passion for peaches, Marsha. Since we live in Georgia, I get my fill! I'm making peach gazpacho, peach cobbler, peach chutney and anything else I can put their delicious goodness in! Beautiful post!
