Peach Season

I went peach picking this week in southern New Jersey. It was cool in the shade and hot in the sun with a light refreshing breeze. A perfect day for picking peaches. Click to enlarge.
The orchard was full of lovely twisted trees covered with ripe easy-to-reach fruit. 
I learned that picking peaches is much easier than picking blueberries. Click here to read about my blueberry adventure in July.
I came home with about 20 pounds of peaches.
I made peach jam that tastes like summer in a jar.
It's delicious.
And I saw this lovely orange variegated fritillary butterfly, Euptoieta claudia
... and an orange flower that looks like a harbinger of autumn.
