  1. I’ve always loved a nice warm and ripe peach and as a youngish man, hitching through southern Europe, I used to walk past peach trees, pluck a ripened fruit off it, tear away the skin and then taste paradise. I’ve never been able to do that again, but I’ve never forgotten what a great experience it was.

  2. Besides the delight of eating a peach from the tree, I love canned peaches with lashings of Carnation evaporated milk on them. Oh and peaches suits you beth. 🙂

  3. Peaches is a lovely name, Beth. When I was a teen, some of my friends called me “Rebel.” I got a kick out of that.

    What a lovely way to celebrate August. I have a recipe for chicken that calls for peaches and blueberries. Oh joy! so wonderful. 😉

  4. I agree with George up there on the comments thread. It looks beautiful, but now that it’s turned it into a work of art, I’m not sure how I’d feel about eating it. Let me lick this Rembrandt a couple of times to make sure.

    Peaches is a lovely nickname, by the way. My uncle’s nickname for me as a young child was “Smiler” — but then I started school.

  5. A perfect way to incorporate childhood memories with being a grandmother of children, Beth. Also, love yhe salad and tie in with September’s Grandparents Day. The quote I simple adored was Vera Nazarian’s. ♡
