Succulent watermelon

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cooled watermelon on a hot summer day. Summer is now gone and watermelon season is almost finished too… sigh… All that is left is what you see in the picture.

I used to know this woman in the USA who used watermelon peels like these to make pickles - they were sweet and sour and tasted much better than it sounds.

nice colors Jazzy...you know what people in southern China used to do with this in the old days, they used the white part to scrub the face, for the cooling effect and it is supposed to be good for the skin...well, I guessed it might work in hot humid weather.

ohhh summer, wishful thinking... yes i wouldn't mind actually to get a recipe for the pickle - if it's that tasty than it's worth a shot.

Meg, Watermelon pickles are indeed great. This photo is wonderful because it takes an ordinary subject and creates an art piece with it. Wonderful!

thank you all again for your lovely comments.

kala - funny you should ask that, yes there is a reason why the watermelon is cut in peaces. they’re cut so small so they can be given to the woman in the village to feed her cows (my mum buys fresh milk and cheese from her from time to time).
