A Van Gogh Bouquet

The gorgeous colors of high summer.

And a watermelon, avocado and feta salad for lunch.  Sprinkled with snipped herbs and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.  I expected to love it, but it was only ok.  Very pretty, however.

Watermelon seems to be turning up in all kinds of recipes this summer.  Rebecca told me about a watermelon and corn salad she made the other day.  Reminds me of how strawberries crossed over into salads - was that in the 90s?  My, I wonder what combination is coming next.

I tried a watermelon salad once, and while I really wanted to like it, I didn't. Such a disappointment, that was.

Happy colors! I've been enjoying just plain watermelon this summer ; )

That salad is beautiful! Too bad it wasn't as tasty. I have a very hard time picking good watermelon, and more often than not opt for cantaloupe instead.

Try the salad with watermelon, feta, arugula, and purple onions with a white balsamic dressing. I think the bite from the arugula is what you are missing.

I love your flowers. Watermelon seems to be very popular lately I agree. We might actually have some from our garden this year - a first!
