Peaches and Cream

Hello everyone,
I am always happy when the new peaches arrive in the stores as they are one of my favorite fruit.So last week I bought several baskets of them.
So then I made some of our favorite peach desserts. This is my husband's favorite-peach cobbler.
and I love creamy peach crumble pie.
always good with a cup of tea.
and a peachy bouquet
A peach teacup for you.
and then of course I had to make several jars of peach jam for biscuits or scones.
I thought you might like the recipe-hope you can read it. This is the lazy way of posting for a slow typer. Click on to enlarge.
This is a close up of the softest shade of peach foxglove from the bouquet.
I am going out for the day with my good friend Mildie on our annual day trip - just touring on our own fair Isle but always a nice time.
So now I hope you have a peachy day too!
Take care,

Good Morning Carolyn from the Midwest. I love peaches too...fresh ones only though. I don't know what it is but I can't stand the canned ones. I think it is the texture. Thanks for a peachy-keen glimpse into your day. Diana

Hello Carolyn
Peach cobbler is one of my favourite desserts and yours looks yummy.
Have an enjoyable day with your friend.

Both the pie and the cobbler look fantastic!!

Our family LOVES peaches. WE have three peach trees, but we're not getting a single peach this year. Due to a late freeze in April and then in early May, all the fruit was lost.

However, I still have several jars of jam left from last year's harvest, so we won't be out of that fresh peach taste.

The flowers are gorgeous!!

Blessings to you,

You're making me hungry with this post!! The peaches are lovely now aren't they. I'm thinking of trying some peach salsa - I wish I could get the Preserve Co. recipe!

Let me know some spots you visit on your daytrip. I'm thinking of some suggestions for Deb of Mountain Musings. She and her dh are coming up here next week.

Have fun!!

Hello Carolyn :) Peaches are my favorite fruit as well, and your cobbler and pie look just delicious. I'll have to make a copy of the recipe and give it a try. Your flowers are just beautiful, and love the soft peach colored foxglove; so pretty :)

Thank you for the recipe, we are headed over to Peach Land, BC in the very near future and I am hoping to bring home some peaches to preserve for such lovelies such as yours this winter. Of course I will make a pie for my sweetie while they are fresh, too.
I love the peach colored flowers and the teacup. So pretty.
Hugs, Cindy s

Peach pie was my husband's favorite. Your pie is gorgeous! I adore that teapot with the roses. Your photos are always so, so beautiful Carolyn. I've decided to start a photo blog. My life is so crazy right now, but no matter what I must get back to my beloved photography. ♥

Carolyn, you are so thoughtful and considerate, and your taste and attention to detail are unsurpassed. This is such a delicious post! You remind me of the days I used to love baking – living on an apple orchard made that easy! Thank you! – g
