Where's Cliff? (also, an abundance of peaches)

Ninety-five degrees, and Sadie and I had to go check on Cliff.  You just never know what sort of trouble he might be into with that tractor.

This morning while walking, Cliff and I found a beautiful cobweb.  There was dew sparkling on it in the morning sun, and I intended to return with my camera.  However, I forgot about it for a couple of hours, and by then it was just an ordinary cobweb.  Down in the holler awhile ago, I broke through many cobwebs, and have found two spiders crawling around on me since returning to the house.  Ewwwww.

I think I have about twenty quarts of peaches in the freezer.  Don't even ask how many I've been eating fresh every day lately.  They are SO good.  I have to watch for worms, since we didn't spray.  And some of them are bird-pecked.  None of that is a problem to me.  I'll share with the critters.

I love cobwebs sparkling with dew; that's one thing we didn't see a lot of in Montana but do in So. California. Those peaches look mighty delicious :)

Pretty hot for Cliff to be out working. Those peaches are really pretty. I love to take frozen ones and pour milk over them then separate them a bit and instant ice cream. I think spider webs with the dew on them are beautiful. Helen

You all are always busy at something.  Peaches fresh from the freezer will taste sooo good come the middle of winter.  It's only in the mid 80's here today and I feel guilty thinking I'm in the a/c while you all are working hard in much more heat .  I bought 2 peaches at the farmers market on the way home from work.  Any more than that would go to waste here.  'On Ya' - ma

if I saw spiders crawling on me. I would hit the roof and scream so loud. I'm such a wimp with bugs.  Those peaches sound great.

Oh, so glad you don't spray (or didn't spray) your peaches!
