fresh peaches

While I was making my rounds in the garden this weekend, I hesitated at our first year peach tree admiring the beautiful, ripening fruit. 

As I reached over to feel for softness, a nice big peach fell right into my waiting hand.

Could it be the wait is finally over? Has the taunting and teasing come to end?

I quickly grabbed a bucket and picked a dozen of these beauties to take inside and wash up.

Dare I say it?


Can you say, peach pie a la mode?

Here's to a week filled with fresh baked goodness.


  1. I haven't found a good juicey peach in years. You're so blessed to be able to go right out in your yard and pick your own!
    Peach ala mode sounds so yummy!

  2. How wonderful to be able to grow your own peaches like that! They look really juicy and delicious, and I love your photos with the embroidered cloth too. Have a happy week.

  3. Great photos but even better homegrown peaches. Yum!

  4. Oh we use to have a peach tree...and I want one again...I can just smell them. I too took pictures of a bucket full of peaches...but I had to buy them at the store, too hot to even go pick them yourself.

    Oh enjoy, enjoy, enjoy...nothing better than home grown peaches.

  5. Peach pie sounds terribly good right now....save a piece for me =) Xoxoxo

  6. ahhhh... I am drooling here so much as the memories of fresh warm peaches right of the tree float thru for head! Thanks for the reminder :) I am jealous of your tree.

  7. Oh WoW...I can say peach pie ala mode! ! Yummy, your crop looks Yummy!

  8. A slice of peach pie would be delicious! You are fortunate to have that tree. The embroidered cloth is such a homey touch.

  9. How wonderful! My Mom had a peach tree in the yard, we couldn't get enough of her peach cobbler. Great memories. Lana www.lifeatwildberrycottage.com

  10. Your peaches are just beautiful. How nice to be able to pick them in your own yard!
    Blessings, Beth

  11. Sigh....wish I lived close enough for a slice of that goodness. Enjoy an extra piece for ME!!!!

  12. My favorite fruit. We went and bought a peck of peaches yesterday at the farmer's market. How nice to have your own growing. Love your photos. I will be sharing our trip to the market soon.

  13. Your pictures are great! I'm hungry for a peach now:)

  15. Oh yum...you made my mouth water! :) I'm glad you commented on my camera cause I didn't know about your new blog, it's so pretty!! I'm following you! (again! Lol) :)
    I wish we had fruit trees, we have bradford pears, but of course they only have pretty flowers, no fruit. Not even sure why they would call them pear trees if they don't produce fruit???? Lol have great day my sweet friend!

  16. Oh, how fun that must be to fill a bucket with peaches off of your very own tree! And your pictures {as usual} are stunning! I hope you enjoy every bit of your peach pie ala mode! That is a perfect reward for your hard work. :) This was a beautiful post!

    I hope you are having a good week, my friend!


  17. Patty, they look so wonderful. I love, love peaches.

    Happy Eating!

  18. Wow they look great! I've had such problems growing any stone fruit and I live in Georgia - I should be able to grow peaches at least!

  19. Those peaches look DEEE-LISH!

    Your photos make me feel like I could reach out and take one from the bowl. :)


  20. Yummy! Peach pie is my all time favorite pie! Rhubarb is still in season here and my grandaughte (who's 3) wanted to make a rhubarb cake yesterday. We forgot the baking powder.... so now have rhubarb bars instead of cake!

  21. Beautiful peaches!!! I have been drooling for fresh peaches...We had a lovely peach orchard right next door to us and they bull dosed it down to build house and then the housing market crashed. No homes were build and no more peach orchard..very sad.
    I will have to go to the fruit stand this weekend and buy some fresh hot off the tree peaches.
    How fun to have your own tree...
    Peach pie sounds delish....
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  22. Mmmm the peaches look very yummy.


  23. Your pictures are killing me! I buy a bag of fresh peaches every Saturday at the Farmer's Market but what I wouldn't give to have a tree in my own yard. I made peach blueberry crisp last week. Yum-o!
