Sweet And Juicy, Peach Season In Texas, By Leada Wood, Texas Artist

"Sweet And Juicy" Copyright 2015 Leada Wood

Our showers of blessings in the form of rain has made Texas come alive with blooms of gorgeous wildflowers, fruits, gardens and of course weeds and mosquitoes! It has been a refreshing spring and summer has arrived! It lifts the spirits to see dry creeks run and lakes filling up...hope it keeps raining until they are all full. Eleven years of drought conditions begins to wear on you after a while. So nice to see everything green instead of brown and cracked. I have noticed more cows grazing in the tall, lush green grasses of the prairies, so happy they have plenty to eat. Feeling grateful and blessed!

The rain has brought on bumper crops of apricots, peaches and pears if they can just hang on through the high winds of the rainstorms. Our June peaches have already been picked, shared, eaten and placed in the freezer. I used one for a model and then ate it...delicious and is good.

Hope sweet things are in abundance in your life this summer.
