Oh, peach, how I love thy juiciness.
I will miss thee come fall.
You provide nourishment for my eldest son
And decorate my window sills with your yellows and reds.
As the peaches in New Jersey are luscious and seem to be almost red in late August, I present this peach as my Ruby Tuesday post.

Nothing like summer produce! Nice pic.
Makes me crave some peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream. Good shot. Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Yum! My mouth is watering…
Happy Ruby Tuesday to you…
A little ditty AND a picture? Such talent! 🙂
That peach just wants to be eaten. Peaches are my favorite fruit. Unfortunately here in Israel (where the quality of the produce is generally superior), the peaches don’t cut it for me. They usually sell the white peaches, which IMHO are not nearly as flavorful as the yellow. So enjoy!
Nice photo. Could eat it.
Very cool photo! It makes me hungry!
Clever red post.
Looks yummy! Cute poem.
Baila, you mean my silly ditty? Read a couple of classic poems, like “Ode on a Grecian Urn”, and change the words.
I remember eating a few peaches in Israel, and yes, I don’t think they were quite as juicy as these. But still quite good. It was late June, and we weren’t yet seeing peaches in New Jersey.
wow! its like i can taste the crispiness of the peach! see y ou at ruby tuesday.
Succulent and delicious, besides being a beautiful Ruby
This peach is stunning in its succulent glory. Ripe and juicy, nature’s nectar. The red is a subtle part of beautiful summer fruit…
This peach looks so juicy and sweet it makes my mouth water!!
Peaches are a favorite at our house as well! Tasty selection for this week 🙂
I’m going to have a peach at this very moment, imported though.
Yours was one to give me water in my mouth.
mmmmm that looks like a good peach
Just the loveliest peach! Happy Ruby Tuesday, Leora! 🙂
Maybe I should add some peaches to the shopping-list!? As we don´t have them in gardens over here, but seeing this post makes me crave for some …
Baila, I love the white ones. I splurged on figs for my guests last night, and am enjoying the remainder.
Boy that looks yummy. Love your ode! I like nectarines better. Something about the fuzzy skin on peaches creeps my mouth out.
Beautiful shot and sweet little verse.
My DIL is addicted to peach pie. There’s a baker on Route 35 who grows all his own produce and he bakes the pies and bread.
It’s like a wonderland there!!
This is a wonderful choice for Ruby Tuesday. I came by looking for your Reflections post and so far not found it, but I’m playing both Ruby Tuesday and Reflections, so am not empty handed.
Alice at I Was Born2Cree8
Or Reflections on Ruby Tuesday
That looks incredible… a nice Ode to that peach.

or this dog’s Reba Ruby Tuesday
Alice, so now you got me wondering what this Reflections is all about…I found this:
This replaces the dragons I keep finding on many photo blogs?
I’ll reflect on this one!
Guess y’all like peaches, huh? I went downstairs and found out the twenty or so I had purchased on Friday at the farmers market are all gone. Off to the supermarket…
i love peaches :-). can i have it?
mmm, I have been craving peaches! My cousin (dackelprincess.com) just posted today about the peach jam she made…delicious!
mmm mmm mmm good! Love peaches! And I love it when you get that just perfectly ripe and juicy one and it makes a mess but it’s oh so worth it!
The peach looks delicious, creative picture for Ruby Tuesday!
I like your ode. 😉
