Every year around this time, the smell of the early summer peaches stops me in my tracks. I can’t resist them. I can’t buy a bushel but a dozen should do. They purposely put them in a paper bag because they need a few days and the wait can be agony. Of course once they’re home the smell just keeps getting stronger.
Finally! I have to eat one immediately and they never disappoint. Peaches hold a certain food nostalgia for me, they are a direct link to my father and his way of making them into something special.
You can read all about that in a post I did several years ago when I first began writing about all those ordinary legacy moments; FATHER’S DAUGHTER MOMENTS: PEACHES
Cherish the ordinary moments, they are truly the stuff of legacy.
