a season for fresh peaches
found along a dusty texas farm road
 he picked out a bucket of sweet summer fruit
 while the simple vines climbing the fences beckoned to me
 light through each leaf  in curve and vein
strength in the curls reaching . holding
a simple stop on the road of life

Oh those peaches look scrumptious! I love how the tendrils curl themselves to brace their growth!

The first photo reminds me of a stained glass window. All of these speak of summer and its many wonders.

I could almost smell those peaches! I crave their summer taste! You are so lucky to live in the South!

mmm... I can almost smell those peaches through the screen, Elk! Oh, I love peaches. I've not had a really good peach in years. They don't grow here, or grow very well that is. So I LIVE peach for a moment here with you. :o) ((BIG HUGS))

How tenaciously those vines cling and wrap those bars.They know that survival and strength means finding the support from where you can. The peaches remind me of the sun because of their glorious color and the embodiment of all the bounties God gives us.
