Lamb Island isn’t as peachy as it currently looks.


It seems kind of early for this peach blossom, but maybe not. It’s on one of a number of scraggly peach trees growing wild here and there on Lamb Island. It doesn’t get cold enough here for the fruit to do its thing – the peaches that form grow only to the size of almond fruit. And yet, assuming that these trees are self-sown, obviously the seeds must be viable. Either that or some local eats a lot of store-bought peaches on the move and throws the seeds away.
