In large serving bowl or giant brandy snifter, toss the watermelon with sweet cherries, blueberries and sliced plums. Cover and chill until serving time, although fruit is always more flavorful served at room temperature.
Meanwhile, puree the thawed strawberries with their juices in a blender jar. Cover and whirl with the fresh lime juice. Drizzle fruit in its serving bowl with strawberry puree and splash with club soda.
