Watermelon Mint Cooler | How to make Watermelon Juice

I keep staring at my crystal clear blank screen..seconds and minutes passed by and still staring..and staring into a galore of  unlimited waves of fresh memories .While I sit down to pen down my thoughts that have been wandering all over my mind, I get to see a membrane coated with  millions of memories moving in between my eyes and the blank screen.. (between mine is a cool girl’y pink laptop ;)
 
It makes me wonder how the Nature rules everything around us with perfect intervals and timing.The blue skies of the summer reminds me of those summer days clapping behind my lovely brothers who used to fly kites high into the clouds and compete with the other kites, the days filled with so many tiny yet serious quarrels between my brother and me quarrelling and competing with each other for the chance of eating the mango with seed(We quite fancy eating the middle part of mango rather than the slices), the bright afternoons filled with showers of scoldings from the house owner while my brothers constantly disturb his sleep as they prepare the fuel for flying kites so it could tear others kites in the sky(Do you remember that kite competition?) ..the cloudy yet shiny evenings  smelled fresh with aroma of onion pakoras( onion fritters)that mom makes ..and me crying for that geetha pal ice(milk ice-cream from the famous brand Geetha)…how many zillion more laces of memories embrace my heart ..!Oh my Indian Summer! You gave me a beautiful childhood that I cannot even ask for more as I have had the fullest of it! 
 
Gateway to immense happiness
Back to reality, summer in England is not a too far away affair to that of mine back in India, but only the ways of enjoying it has changed..All am doing now is to get out into the greenish meadows filled with infinite rows of  wild flowers bursting with glitters of golden yellows and yes with my Canon of-course!Since the time I had travelled to England for the the first time , I have noticed in-numerous shades of green and blue in these English landscapes.My connection to the English countryside seems to be getting stronger and stronger..the green meadows, well maintained gardens blossoming with colourful flowers, the lush green tender plants creeping on to the rustic walls,the wooden bus stops..okay I will stop it here:) 
 
But you look at these cuties..how innocent they are..! We have been to Carding Mill valley and Shropshire hills recently..I will be back with a separate travel post later..
 
 
 
 

Fruits fruits fruits..blueberries,cherries,raspberries,cantaloupes, melons,strawberries,mangoes..my fridge is filled with these beauties now,should I scoop out the juicy water-melon, or should I start slicing it erm..or should I blend it for a sorbet? Finally I made a drink! Water-melon Mint cooler it is!
