Who does not adore peaches~
Even if you may not like fresh peaches, there is always peach salsa, peach ice cream and peach sorbets, then their is peach cobbler, pie, and upside down peach cake, peach preserves, even peach wines and daiquiris, among the thousands of offerings this delicious fruit holds.
The stars of the show all begin with tree ripened fresh peaches.
Many states here grow them, including Kentucky, and Brays Orchard is just about a 30 minute drive from our home and the other day, I made my way there.
I ended up not making a purchase though, as I found many of the peaches either too ripe, or they just looked sun baked.
Many fallen peaches lay rotting at the base of trees.
I asked one of the managers if I could just roam around a bit and take a few photographs and she obliged me with a hearty yes... sure~
Much of the fruit looked like the peach above, just too far gone to pick, and I am really not sure why, or what was going on.
Many of the trees in a nearby orchard...see the fully loaded tree images... looked especially beautiful, compared to the fruit on the trees at Bray's, only a mile, or less down the road.
En route, I passed by Foxhollow Farm where 2 young trainers were giving a workout to 2 of the farms Icelandic Horses.
They have invited me to join them at the barns for a photography session, which I plan to do one day this week~
Farm grasses glistened in the early sunlight, with the morning dew still upon them.
Hoping each of you have a Happy Monday, and a Happy and safe week.
