Watermelon Lemonade

This different yet refreshing Lemonade is perfect for your next shindig. It is perfect served as is or you can add a bit of kick to it by adding a splash of vodka.

The weather has been so weird here in Virginia. There is a standing joke that only here you can experience all the seasons in just one day.
I do think for the past few months this has been true. In fact just the other day it started out around 35 in the morning. When the sun went down it was way past 80. How crazy is that?
It is now almost May and I am just now getting to plant my garden. Why you ask? It has been way to cold. Especially for my tomatoes. They do not like the cold at all. They will pout if it falls below 65 and it has up until recently.
So today it is almost 80 and it will be about that for another week now. I am ready to plant my garden.
Perhaps I will have all that done by Memorial Weekend.
In honor of all those warm days how about a cool drink. Then do you think you could help me with my garden?
