Watermelon Time

I think this Basket of Flowers looks lovely. Mostly they are artificial with just a few fresh picked ones in with them. They are sitting on the settee on our back patio for me to take this photo in the morning sunshine.

The heading of this Blog is Watermelon Time. So here is a Recipe a bit different maybe to what you are used to. I hope you like it as it is used to go with cold meat, lettuce and other salad things.

Recipe:

WATERMELON SALAD

Ingredients: Watermelon, Mint (fresh or dried) Spring Onions/Scallion or Spanish or Red Onion. Which ever you prefer.

Method:

Cut Watermelon into balls or 2 cm. dice, place in large serving bowl, add the chopped up Onion, sprinkle in the fresh or dried mint to taste.

Mix well and serve cold with sliced cold Meat, Chicken or Fish.

Cover and cool in fridge until needed.

This is nice and also very refreshing on a hot day, you can of course use it as an extra salad with your B.B.Q food. It will keep well in the fridge for a couple of days. Just remember to cover the container when in the fridge to help keep it fresh.

Here is a Bible verse: Proverbs: 20 v 7. The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.

Here is a Poem:

Little one sleeping there,

Tender Love Divine.

Little one Sleeping there,

Are you truly mine?

Has God given you to me,

Tender Love Divine?

Has God given you to me?

Yes, – You’re truly mine.

Poem about a Rose

ApricotRose100_5092

This Painting I painted is called ‘Apricot Rose’ 

So I thought today it may be nice to put a poem on about a ‘Rose’.

When you think about it the Rose is one of the most favourite of flowers.  I don’t seem to have much success in growing them here because we get a lot of salt from the ocean and the soil is very sandy.  Yes I have tried growing them in pots but they have not grown very well, probably because I either give them too much water or maybe not enough.  Then in the hot weather the Sun comes in sometimes over 40 deg. Celsius and shrivels them up. 

So I am better off to paint them or to write a poem about them.

Here is a Poem for today with a picture of the largest Rose I have painted.
