Maybe it’s the Nebraska girl in me, but few things capture the feeling of summer quite like watermelon. Yesterday I stopped into one of my favorite fruit and vegetable shops in Amalfi. The couple ahead of me had asked for a piece of anguria (watermelon), and the woman in the shop was busy cutting off a big quarter. It’s pretty common here to ask for only a piece instead of an entire watermelon, especially since most refrigerators are so small. There was one lonely piece of anguria left, so (of course!) I brought it home with me. The temperatures are still very springlike here, but the flavor of the watermelon is a sweet reminder that summer is just around the corner!

No watermelon or warmth here yet, in fact we have had 17mm of rain overnight!
We got an early taste of the summer heat last weekend and celebrated/commiserated by getting a watermelon. The temperatures promptly plummeted and the watermelon still tastes great!
A little bit of home is always nice!
