Today's Wonder of the World is...Juicy Ripe Peaches!
We're in prime time peach season, y'all!!!
All over upstate South Carolina, the branches are just loaded with them.
See what I mean?
I took that picture yesterday after supper.
We had just sat down to eat when a wild craving came over all of us. (I think it was the peach scent in the air.) All of us, except Sam, that is, who gets nauseous at the thought of fruits and vegetables!
What else could we do? We gobbled up our dinner, piled in the car, and drove straight to Fisher's Produce Stand, a few miles from home. The light was really nice, so I walked out back and snapped a few pictures of the peach trees.
Then I hurried back to see what the selection looked like.
It looked mighty fine! In fact, I could hardly move! I just stood there, drooling over the baskets of ripe juicy peaches!
We decided on a small bag for now, and then a bigger basket when the big kids get home from camp this weekend.
As you can see, Sam did find something he could eat. Those sneaky peach farmers! They put an ice cream shop right onto the end of the produce stand!
Of course, I had to get peach.
And yes, it was as good as it looks.
Now, what to do with all those peaches?
I could make peach cobbler...

I really am heartless to tempt you like this.
Or I might just eat them au naturel.

(The peaches are au naturel, that is. I will wear clothes. Don't you worry. Or else I'd get peach juice all over myself and that could be uncomfortable.)
Let's change the subject.
Did you know that when we lived in France, we found that the French love slightly sweet tea? If it's peach flavored!!
See, I knew they weren't so different from Southerners!

And look what product they have out now!
You won't believe it! What a perfect snack!

This one's from Italy, but they have it in France too. It's Peach Tea with sweet breadsticks to dip in Nutella! I am just flabbergasted by such ingenuity! My favorite things! Together!
(I haven't been this pleased since I discovered Reese's cups!)
Have a Wonder-Full Thursday, everybody!
And enjoy the trailer for James and the Giant You-Know-What!
UPDATE: Thanks May, for alerting me to this video of a peachy song you must enjoy. Don't miss the end. It's weirdly wonderful!
