Life's A Peach and Bees Sting

I took this photo at Dickey's Peach Farm
a few weeks ago. I love to visit there and 
get some of there peaches. They also have
peach ice cream!

But first let me tell you what happened to
me this morning.  I was watering my hanging
basket that was next to my fennel. All of a 
sudden I felt a sting on my arm.

I hadn't notice that my fennel was covered
with these little stingers!!
 Bumble Bees!

I guess I'll take notice from now on!

Here they are on my fennel.
It's been over 5 hours and it still hurts.

When we got home from church yesterday
my new neighbor and friend, Lisa, had left
me a half dozen of the prettiest and largest
peaches, at my door. She had gone to Dickey's!
(boy am I glad I had told her about them)

We had eaten 2 of them that day, with only 4 left
I decided to make a peach cobbler. (I had to pamper myself a little, after all I had a sore arm)

 Here's how you make it.

Cut up your peaches. I used 4 but they are
large. If they are small use 1 or 2 more.

Melt 1 stick butter.

 Mix together
1 cup flour,(I use self rising)
1cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk

 That's it !! 
Just pour the mixture into the butter, but don't stir!

 Drop the sliced peaches onto the mixture, don't stir!
The dough will rise to the top.
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until brown on top.

Extra good with vanilla bean ice cream!

Enjoy and
Have a Blessed Day!

  1. I love that cobbler recipe-especially with peaches! Hope your arm is better soon!

  2. Good afternoon Sylvia! I'm so sorry to hear about your bee sting. Those do hurt, ouch! My oh my how that peach cobbler looks so yummy. I love how simple your recipe is. I wrote it down and will be making it soon. Thanks for sharing. Have a lovely week. Hugs, Amy

  3. Awww Sylvia, you poor thing with the bee sting! Yes, you certainly did deserve a big helping of peach cobbler and it looks soooo good, too.

  4. Awwwwwwwww, you got stung by a honey bee. Not fair!

    Did you remove the stinger????

    Is there anything more delicious than fruit cobblers and crisps? Yes, my husband prefers my home made pie crust, with any pie filling... But cobblers and crisps are so much easier!!! And that's my middle name "easy"! :-)

  5. Sweetest Sylvia, your peach cobbler looks divine and I bet it tastes heavenly :) I can't wait until we get some peaches here....I will have to try your recipe.

    I am so, so, so sorry about your bee sting :( You poor dear! Sending hugs your way! Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!

  6. Sorry about the bee sting....they really hurt. Peaches are my all time favorite summer fruit, and I use that recipe with any kind of fruit or even with canned fruit for pies. It is easy and we love it with ice cream too!

  7. Sylvia, So sorry about the bee sting. You deserve that peach pie WITH ice cream! Thanks for the handy recipe, too.
    Hope you can rest well.

  8. Oh your fresh peaches- and then the amazing cobbler you made- looks soooooo good.

    I am SO SORRY about your bee sting, ouchie! I hate those!

    Healing hugs coming your way! ♥

  9. your peach cobbler looks great, bummer about the sting, the hazards of summer, hope it is feeling better now

  10. Ouch...that sting looked painful. I love fresh peaches and that dessert looks so yummy!

  11. Owie! I know that bee sting hurts. So sorry. But, oh, that peach cobbler! Now I want some! I have made a couple of them this summer, but yours looks better than mine. I may have to try again! Thank you for these lovely pictures. Always a treat!

  12. O my I hope your feeling better from that sting now.. the peaches look grand and the cobbler o my be right over .. hehe with love Janice

  13. Peaches and ice cream two of my favourite things. I guess the bees weren't ready for bathing just yet, hope the sting is fine now.


  14. Oh Sylvia...I pray your arm is doing better :0) now, peach cobbler is just the thing on a warm summer day. Now, I don't use self-rising flour, I'm going to find a recipe with the baking powder content...probably a tablespoon :0) Thank you for sharing. mari
