Yes, I said watermelon. I bought this little watermelon earlier in the week at Bauman's Farm here in town. While I knew it was going to be yellow on the inside, I was still surprised that it was really YELLOW. Not hints of yellow, or yellow to pink -- just yellow, through and through -- wonderful contrast to the big black seeds.

Not only is it a pretty color but man, is it sweet and yummy. Seems that Mother Nature is always up for a surprise. Now I am thinking about yellow gemstones, Let's see -- I have yellow jade, African opal, aragonite, yellow calcite and some yellow jasper. All lovely to look at and fun to wear.
