Pomegranate

I was only going to do one post but had to share this one because I thought it was pretty cool. I've seen pomengranates before, and used to eat plenty of them as a kid from a neighbor's tree. But I didn't know they split open like this. I guess it's how they drop their seeds. Cool!

It looks lovely with all those colours but also quite weirdo! Something from the Alien movies...

I haven't seen a pomegranate for years can't even remember what they taste like.

I didn't know they split either, but then I don't see them growing around here :-) They are so colorful with red and pink and yellow and everything in between...like a sunset!

If you soak them in water, the fruit/seeds come out easy.

Very cool. I've never seen them growing on a tree before -- only neatly stacked in the grocery store. ;-)

Ooooh! What luscious seeds. I did a watercolor of a pomegranate a few weeks ago, and I had to use a photo, because they were not in our stores yet. Yours looks delightful. Yum.

Interesting photos, we obviously don't have pomegrantes growing in our cold climate, I've only seen them in the grocery store.

This is lovely. I like how you shot this. It takes me about 2 hours to eat pomegrantes coz if you are not careful, you'll stain your clothes. :)
