Here’s a sure sign that summer, yes summer, is on the way. These are peach trees, and they are blooming! One of the coolest sights to see is an orchard like this one at sunset. Everything  glows with color.

Extreme weather hurts the summer crop of peaches. This is one of the reasons those of us who live in the south never want to hear about a late freeze. The trees are just so fragile. Every blossom represents a summer peach!
