Fresh Peaches

by Margaret Mendel

The late spring and early summer air seems to smell sweeter than at other times of the year because that’s when fresh peaches begin to show up in the markets. I imagine the air delicately imbued with the odor of succulent juices incased in the fuzzy fruit. I smile when I see the first locally grown peaches in the farm stands and on the market shelves knowing that I can now make some of my family’s favorite treats.
