  1. Score, I love being the first one here, LOL

    WOW, your camera really rocks the close up. Get this, I’ve never bought a pomegranate…….way πŸ˜€ I had a girlfriend in school who loved them and I never got the craze. She used to just eat the seed gel and spit the seed…ya lovely. I would have never guessed if you hadn’t said. This is a silly question but, do you peel it?

    • YAY you’re the first! I was thinking about you earlier this evening πŸ™‚
      I was at a friend’s house with some other women the other night and she taught us how to get inside. You score it kind of like an orange and peel the skin back.
      You would have loved how we “ate” them … added to our glasses of wine!!

      • No kidding? Sounds like the meal of champions, HA. Would that be red or white? I’m afraid I’ve had a wine overload on Saturday at my SIL’s 50th Birthday. Maybe 4 glasses or so, but they were a tad big. Those headaches are a killer πŸ˜€ As I’ve said before, “I’m never doing that again” LOL

      • Uncle Spike! -Thanks for the links to your pomegranate posts. I can’t believe the weight those bushes can hold! So my friend had the first part right, but I can see how the water would make the process so much easier!
        And Boomdee, when we meet for that big ‘ol blogging party in the middle of the continent, I’ll be drinking red! and yes … lots and lots of water is needed to hold off those dehydration headaches! Hopefully you are recovered by now πŸ™‚

    • If you feel comfortable doing so, remind me where you are (at least the continent πŸ™‚ ) in the great wide world. I haven’t had a fresh pomegranate in a long while, but I’ve enjoyed them on and off through the years. For some reason, they were being sold at our local grocery store recently and a friend shared one with me. Lucky me!

      • I can’t even claim a continent! Living here in a small country at the bottom of the world, 3000km from our nearest neighbour, Australia.

        I’m a New Zealander or, if you prefer, a Kiwi πŸ™‚

        We proudly remain nuclear free, despite our right wing governments attempts to change that – and we still proclaim our clean, green image despite Monsanto and co’s inroads to destroy that and their attempts to bring us up to speed with the rest of the world ……Less than 5 million inhabitants, but 15 million sheep…. few pomegranates make it through to us and I don’t think anybody actually grows them commercially ……. πŸ™‚

      • Love reading about New Zealand’s efforts to stay green (and your politics πŸ™‚ ). And more sheep than people!
        Someday I’ll get there!!

  2. Love poms, we eat them every night this time of year… alas just 35 remain in our store πŸ™‚ I added a couple of links above for your reader regarding poms too.

    • I shared the links with the women I was enjoying wine and pomegranates with the other night. So you are growing those bushes in Turkey? Is that right? Is it a climate thing? (forgive me if I read the post too quickly and you aren’t in Turkey … trying to get too much done before heading off to work this morning … but pomegranates do come first!).

  3. Really colorful shots LB. Did you get the camera back ? I thought I heard something begging to be photographed from here but I just couldn’t figure out what it was, LOL. Have a wonderful day πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Joe … my friend who gave me the pomegranate now wants photos of the inside … these photos were taken with the camera before I took it in, and the insides will have to be taken once the camera is home (hopefully Friday!)

  4. Er, you crazy? Then call me crazy too, LB. I am considering this color for my new counter tops for the cupboards we are making for our new kitchen on the Mountain.

    Such a gorgeous color, and you have captured the essence of Poms perfectly!

    • What a gorgeous color for the cupboards!! I’ll look forward to seeing them!
      As I told Joe in the previous comment, the friend who gave me the pom has asked me to photography the inside … a challenge for when I get the camera back!

  5. lol…crazy, no, artistic eye, yes!!! these photos are awesome…love them and pomegranates too, even better with wine! What are you using to take photos with?

    • You get it! you should see the B&W I took of it … with the long shadow of the pomegranate. It wasn’t good enough to post but it made me chuckle

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
