Skywatch Friday




Today's Central Texas sky is background to a flowering peach tree. Peaches from this part of Texas are some of the best tasting ever put in your mouth. We commonly refer to them as Fredericksburg peaches. Since we've had so much rain these past 6 months, the ground is soaked, and we should get a bumper peach crop.

For more skies around the world, go here.

Until next time, God bless.

Gorgeous! But I had no idea Texas was peach state. Thanks!

Jama, something about the alkaline soil (calachie) in the Central Texas area makes for wonderful peaches. Once tasted, you do not want anything except a Fredericksburg peach. lol We are about 40 miles east of Fredericksburg, but we get the same tasty peach.

Lynn, those are beautiful photos. The bright pink blooms on the blue sky is striking. A nice juicy peach sounds really good.

We were out of town most of the weekend so I'm really late getting caught up with everyone.
