Summer Sweet



Okay, the slice of cantaloupe smelled even better than the Oreos. I'll bet it tastes better, too!

I hope you're having a great weekend!

This is a very dramatic and beautiful painting Darla! I love the way the seeds are clinging to the top of the slice. We call these melons Rockmelons here in Australia.

LOL @ Kari! And Wendy, I may start calling them rockmelons, too! How cool!
