Pomegranates



For the first time I can remember, my pomegranate trees didn't bear fruit last year. We had months of record highs combined with severe drought. It really was "hell on earth", hehe. I do hope this summer will be cooler.

My pomegranates are in bloom once again. The second tree in the very back of the garden unfortunately has already dropped most of it's buds. I'm not really sure why that happened, although I am aware that most gardens have their own unique micro-climates. The tree closer to the house is filled with blossoms, and I'm hoping for at least a few juicy pomegranates later this year.

Oh, must be so nice to have your own pomegranate trees that provide you with fresh fruit! Hope you'll get lots of yummy pomegranates.
