Summertime!

The first official day of summer is next Tuesday.
We've been setting record high temps in three digits since the
beginning of the month.
I'm tired of summer already!

But
I never tire of watermelon!
For me, watermelon and summer go together.

I searched on Flickr and found some wonderful watermelon images.
Here are just a few:

I do not like three digit temperatures ever but watermelon is delightful! This is a very refreshing mosaic :)

At least watermelon makes you think cooler! We've just gotten to Maine where the hot is replaced by cool, almost cold at night.
I love the Zen quote AND hearing from you.

That gazpacho prep looks like just a great salad, yum. Isaw your temps and thought, oh no, not another brutal summer. xox Corrine

If I can't have ice cream I will gladly take watermelon.

We had 3 days of those super high temps and now I am grateful for our 60 degree days. I would enjoy some mid to high 70s though.

Spring is my favourite season...until summer rolls around!!! I'm so fickle!! Actually, I'd say that are equal in regards to my favourites...and watermelon IS summer!!! Great finds on flickr!

Your mosaic is wonderful. I love watermelon! Wwe have not had a 3 digit temp yet but it's been in the high 90's. So hot and so early!...Christine

I look at that mosaic and just feel envious. No warmth here yet. Last night we went to a dinner to honour our firemen - a dinner held outdoors, under a marquee. I nearly froze and had to come home to a hot bath and a pot of tea. Watermelon? Not for a while!

Watermelon looked better in the old days when it had all those black seeds in it, but it is much easier to eat now that it doesn't.

SavannahGranny said...

Looks sooooo good. Hope to cut one today. Last weeks was so scrumptious. Love the pics sure makes one hungry.
Thanks for your visit and sweet comments. Have a great day. Ginger :)

Janet said...

Great photos. I never tire of watermelon either. I could eat it every day.

We have only had a couple of days that got into the 90's so I'm loving our weather right now. I know the triple digits are coming but right now it's great.

I like summer but not the humid hot days we can have here sometimes. Your watermelon mosiac looks cool and refreshing. Great photos, I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Mary said...

Mmmm, yes -- we have been eating watermelon almost every day... hope you get some cooler weather soon! xoxo

You have been having very HOT temperatures, ugh. Watermelon would be a cooling treat. Great mosaic.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Over 100 degrees? Not my kind of weather! I like the cooler days of spring and fall. I do love watermelon and you found such pretty photos of all kinds of wonderful watermelons!

I was looking at your Watermelon recipes earlier today and didn't get a chance to comment then. They all look so good. I've already planned to make your Watermelon Lemonade later this week...that sounds soooooo great!

Thank you for your sweet comment earlier today!

Pattie T. said...

It will be 94 today and our air conditioner has gone out. Looking at your lovely mosaic made me feel cooler. I'd love anyone of those cool treats right now.

Katalin said...

HHHMMMMMMM!!!!

Sarah said...

Just looking at those images offers a cooling effect. I love watermelon. We keep a bowl of cut pieces in our refrigerator to snack on. It's the perfect treat on a hot day, and believe me are certainly having our share of HOT days. I'm tired of summer already too! ~ sarah

Jan said...

Now THAT's refreshing!

You probably don't want to know that we woke up to 40 degrees on the old thermometer this morning and that parts of the high mountains got 6" of snow.

No, I won't tell you and make you sad.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I am SO hungry for watermelon! It's HOT here and I see lots of them in the stores! I'll have to get one before we leave! Hugs! ♥
