Yum... Summertime fruit...

And even better if you can grow and pick your own... nectarines from my garden...

Yummy... nectarine preserves... nectarine smoothie made by moi...

Don't want to waste all those nectarines falling off the tree... some recipes to try... this one via Country Living magazine...
Yes... this recipe via Real Simple magazine does call for peaches... but I will be substituting them for nectarines... Wow... maybe I need to have a party... this dress via Neiman Marcus is the right colour to match my nectarine delights...



We need a summertime location... Perhaps I can paint one... like this... Borrowed the house form Country Living July 2008 issue... Hope they don't mine all the guests...
Here's a centerpiece... Hmmmm... anyone have a recipe for a nectarine martini or cocktail? If so... bring it along!

Fifi,
Please send me the invoice for the two paintings.
How long will it take to ship them?

You grow nectarines?! How wonderful! Nectarines are one of my favorite summer fruits. That smoothie looks yummy.

Oh Fifi, I LOVE nectarines! My favorite summer fruit, and I can't believe you have a nectarine tree. Lucky you!

Love the paintings!

Fresh Nectarines wow. You can't buy good ones from the market anymore. I envy you. :)
Love the paintings. Puts me in the mood to enjoy our nice warm weather.
From what I can see it looks like you have a lovely yard too.

Hi Fifi! Nectarines, my favorite!!! Wish I had a tree in my backyard. Love your new pics! I still haven't made up my mind if my order is going to be a gift! Would you mind if I post it with a link to your site? Have a great day, Jeannette

Preserves! My favorite summer past-time!

Just beautiful, why would they mind all the guests - the more the merrier they say.

I wonder if I could use apricots for that recipe? Probably not... The neighbors down the street have figues though - maybe during the evening walk I could borrow some?? No recipe for martinis or any other kind of cocktails using nectarines, but bet between us all we could improvise ;)

The picture with the flowers and urn - it's gorgeous.
