Watermelons!  Yesterday, I became completely transfixed by this photo of the Moon & Stars watermelon accompanying this interesting article in the NY Times Dining & Wine Section.  I haven’t been this fascinated by a fruit since my summer 2006 Prickly Pear cactus obsession:

Oh, how I love me some Prickly Pear!  I think it’s the deep pink of both the pears & within the core of the melon that I find so very pretty.  Hopefully, this beauty will last you through the weekend.  I’ll be back next week.  Cheers!

    Hi Gwen,

    What a beautiful post. I, too, love prickly pear…it is the state plant of texas, and I sent one to David for his birthday, a month after our initial love affair in Austin. Remember?

    It ended up giving him dozens of tiny splinters in the palms of his hand. Not so good. Alas, we left the cactus in Chicago upon our move. I hear she is doing well and can be seen at the Grind coffee shop in the square.

    Can’t wait to try this melon…yum!

    Hi, I found this while hunting pictures of the watermelon. Apologies for intruding.

    I ate these as a kid. An old man would bring them to the farmer’s market on the square in Clinton Mo where my grandparents lived. We always bought one. They were SO good.

    I’m tickled to be able to grow my own.
