June 8:

On Wednesday, Melanie and Richard picked Apricots at West Orchards north of Macon. They are just yummy. So far, Melanie has processed them into halves (canned in pints) and as jam (Lavender Apricot). They are going fast. All "jarred up", they look like pure sunshine.

Melanie put some fresh Apricots in this little colander that belonged to my dear Mother. I have no idea of its story. For as long as I can remember, Mother had a little place for it in the drawer for pots and pans under the stove. Knowing her, it had a story, and she knew the story by heart.

The simplest of things makes me smile. I wonder what stories this old blue colander could tell.
