Everything is Peachy! And Welcome to New Followers
My friend, Edgar Woodfin, a very talented photographer and descended from one of our prominent local peach farming families in Gramling, graciously granted me permission to post pix he took of some of our local orchards both this year and in years past. It was interesting to see the change in color of blossoms from year to year. The lighter pink profusion of blooms is this year and the darker ones were from years past. And they seem to have bloomed later this year due to our colder, harsher winter this year. Our city of Inman once called itself the Peach Capitol of the World as we grew more peaches in our region alone than the entire state of Georgia, known as The Peach State. We don't have as many orchards as there once were but there are still beautiful orchards and even little plots of peach trees between homes and businesses.
Also, inspired by the beginning of peach season, I have made some miniature fuzzy peaches and listed some in my Etsy shop. In the photo below, I made the sofa, the goose, the hydrangea and the peaches.
