When is the last time you had a great honeydew? I love honeydew melons but most often they're terrible. I'm happy to report that in the US we are in prime honeydew season. Go to your grocer and look for one that has a yellow hue on the outside. If it is still a lovely shade of white, give it a few days. Smell the stem area for a faint, beautiful honeydew scent. It's ready!
In honor of the fabulous honeydew I recently sliced open, I gathered up an assortment of honeydew items. My intent was to find honeydew green- not avocado green, not granny smith apple green, nor lime, but honeydew. In my mind, I picture a cool almost sagey color (but with less blue). Green with hints of creamy white. Easier said than done. Here's the roundup!
A great combo here- honeydew green stripes paired with white and cream.

Fantastic bedding on this website. Here, the green is paired with golden shades.

And perfect in the outdoors. I ADORE this little house (more on this in a future post!)
A tasty Honeydew Beverage, perhaps?
We'll end with Honeydew paint/material samples.

Krylon Honeydew (this is a ridiculous color sample, I realize, but it was the best representation I could find!) This would be fantastic in the yard for accents, I think.
