Windswept

July 1st we went for a walk along the boardwalk in the Oliver Wetlands and I can't describe how hot and dry it would have been if not for the lovely breezes that swept down the Okanagan Valley.  However, at this time and for the last 6 weeks like much of the province of BC, we have been completely blanketed by forest fire smoke.  

It's peach season in July and August in the Okanagan Valley.  Succulent, dripping with sweet fragrant juices, it makes my mouth water to even think about them.  Sliced with ice cream?  Or served with cream?  With my brushstrokes, I attempted to get the fuzziness of peach skin.
