Wordless Wednesday: Watermelon Time

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

  1. What a fun summer pic! Now I'll have to go and buy watermelon. ;)

  2. Just in time, too...Summer is almost gone. Your Aunt had to have been fun loving gal to pose in the bushes with a big watermelon smile!

  3. Delightful! Looks like it is right off the vine! ha

  4. That looks like a pretty big water melon! Nice and juicy.

  5. It's such a delicious and timely tradition!

  6. I love that your family took so many pictures and that they were saved from generation to generation.

  7. How fun!
    I love to see some fun photos with all the serious ones from way back.
    Happy Wednesday!

  8. Isn't it great someone had the forethought to take that photo? It seems like the fun times in life weren't often photographed in the early 1900s. So glad someone snapped your great Aunt Helen.
