Sweetness...

...the aroma was heavenly...

...juicy...

...no need for this...
I'm sure some prefer
do you eat yours with salt?
...memories from long ago...
Daddy would hold & tilt
and
I would drink the juice to my heart's tummy's content.

This is my nephew's son.
My dad would have enjoyed him so much!

What a cute little guy!! I love watermelon and remember as a child having the juice drip down my arms and having a big belly from it.

Ginny said...

What wonderful and evocative pictures! I think your tummy AND heart were both content when you had watermelons with your dad. After going back again to have another look at that sweet little boy, I just noticed that he is leaning on a watermelon!! What wonderful watermelon memories, past and present.

You know you caught it...that is why I enjoy watermelon so much...such memories! Now they tell us all the nutritional value in watermelon, but growing up, spitting seeds, juice dripping down my arms...to me it taste great and brings back so many memories.

So glad you came to the party, Karen. Your photos are magnificent, and watermelon is one of my favorite summer eats. I think it was Mark Twain who said when you've tasted watermelon you know what the angels eat. :) Your little nephew is a cutie pie.

Yep! Salt is required on my watermelon and cantaloupe. My family thinks I am crazy but that's the way I've always eaten it. Maybe it's a southern thing. :) Your nephew is adorable. Blessings, Tammy

I didn't know that salt was ever taken on watermelon. I can't imagine that. Beautiful photography!

So funny, I just told my husband before I went to your blog, there is some watermelon left in there I am going to get some! I use salt I think it makes it sweeter. So many wonderful summer memories around watermelon isn't there? Thanks for stopping by Behind the Gate and for a visit today.
