The peach aged into autumn splendour, rich warm colour and patina. Lohbado took the photos about five years ago, when peaches were in season. The basket of fruit contained two bad peaches, not morally bad, but bad in the sense of being spoiled, not spoiled rotten, just bruised and mushy. They were on the first tier. The peaches on top were ready for eating, whereas a few on the bottom should have been eaten long ago.
It started out as a peach blossom, grew to full size, ripened, was picked or fell from the tree. A beautiful pale orange rose gold colour pleasing to the eye, all juicy inside, soft to the touch, fragrant and sweet when eaten at the right moment, best not eaten if it's bruised or mushy.
