Delightfully Peachy

This flower mailbox and delightful yard are from a peach orchard in Colorado. The whole place looked yummy enough to eat.

I once said, "Eat to live, not live to eat." But I must confess, with peaches it's pretty much 50/50. I know they are good for me, but I also really enjoy them.

In my day, if I over indulged in rich pastries and such, I would surely suffer with gout. Which is why I also said, "To lengthen your life, lessen your meals."

But food fresh from the garden always seemed good for me. And when I ate good I was able to work better. How about you?
Do you have your own lovely garden? Do you try to keep your meals healthy and wise?
