One of my favorite things to do (in season) was a watermelon basket. I could get rather creative with how the melon was carved. But, recently a friend sent me one of those e-mail forwards that can be very popular. This one featured a variety of carved watermelons that were entered into a contest at a watermelon festival that was supposedly held somewhere in Italy. I googled the information and found these same photos posted on dozens of blogs but after much trying could not find the original source.
So please note: these are not my photos and I can not give credit to the carvers or the photographer. I can not even give credit to the place where this festival was supposedly held. But, these pics are just too good not to share. Since there are so many I have but them in a collage or mosaic form.
Of all these carvings I feel that I could only do justice to trying to copy these last four
So, does this inspire you to head to the fruit stand for a nice big watermelon?
How creative could you be with one of these wonderful summer treats?
