taste of summer

i have been buying and eating lots of apricots this month. when i was young, my grandparents had several apricot trees on their property in western colorado. i remember picking them right off the tree for a snack. they seemed much bigger, almost like apples, back then.

the funny thing is that as soon as i smell an apricot, my memories of those days come back so vividly. what a delicious way to time travel!


  1. Love the sentiment in your post today. And I love the tartness of apricots.

  2. Mmm yum! We had an apricot tree growing up. One year there would be many many small ones (and no good) but the next year, there would be fewer but larger yummier ones. So every other year we had an awesome crop. Enjoy!
