Pomegranates 2

I had so many lovely comments about the pomegranates that I was stunned. A few people commented that they had never seen what they look like growing on a tree. Since we harvested only some of them, I have included some pictures of the fruit laden tree in our garden.

Here is a view of the garden:

When we bought our house, I never realized how much pleasure I would get from that garden. We have only a small patch of grass, but yesterday it served as a base for the inflatable swimming pool I bought before I moved into the house. Yesterday was the first time I used it. Kinneret, 2 years old, enjoyed playing in the pool, emptying water from cup to cup and having my husband and me and her pouring the cups of water on her back, her head, and her chest. She giggled and laughed and splashed. It was idyllic– and it took place in the shade of the pomegranate tree.

  7. In Singapore it’s very easy to spot this tree, almost every chinese will have a pot of pomegranate , mostly not in gardens since almost 60% percentage of us live in high rise apartment.
    Your garden is so beautiful.

    • Jama,

      When I was growing up, we called pomegranates “Chinese apples.” I guess now I know why! I would love to visit Singapore someday. Everyone I know who has been there says it’s a very special place.

  13. This is so lovely. One of our goals is to have a little patch of grass/greenery attached to our house. (And therefore why we could never afford to live in Yerushalayim!) Just a place to throw the kids to play and to sit in the shade!

  14. Persephone ate
    luscious pomegranate seedsรขโ‚ฌโ€
    and Hades rejoiced.
