More from the peaches

Now it's my turn.  I have a big tray of peaches to clean,
peel and freeze on baking trays covered with wax paper.
Steven doesn't use sugar in his canning process, just
lemon juice.  Freezing is way easier.  When the
trays come out of the freezer (it takes about a day), the
frozen peaches go into freezer bags that I wash and reuse from
year to year.

Here's another painting featuring peaches.  This time
of year is so nostalgic.  The garden is at its peak,
the trees are still thick with green, although some are
turning.  Sunny days like today are warm and wonderful.

And everyone in this town knows that this perfection
won't last, so we're making sure we enjoy every minute.

Have an enjoying every minute day.
