OH, HOW I LOVE THEE, WATERMELON…
The evenings are getting darker much, much earlier and, my! isn’t it chilly out when I commute home…which means summer is waning and autumn is on its way. *sigh* Here comes the infinite rain, homemade soups and stews, and cozy snuggles while watching the Fall lineup of new TV shows (and favourite returning ones too – heeeello, Scandal.)
Today, at this moment, I am wistful since I must say goodbye to my favourite fruit – the watermelon. So long, dear friend. See you next summer. Your fresh, sweet, succulent, crisp, pinkish hue will all be a distant memory…and I will have to replace you with your distant cousins: apples, persimmons, figs, and pomegranates (and, come to think of it, this deserves a hurrah!).
