Wordless Wednesday, March 7


I'm a bit of a wreck today -- work, work, and more work -- so I'm offering some eye-candy in lieu of book content. Forgive me! I was browsing my vacation pictures over the weekend, wishing I was traveling and not, well, working, and I stumbled across this shot -- I'm rather pleased with it!

Pomegranates, from the gorgeous cacophony that was the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem. Taken December 2011.

  3. Lovely, and it looks like it was taken at an outdoor market? How fun! I've had pomegranate juice but never an actual pomegranate... (Can you just eat them, eat them? Like an apple?)

    1. We weren't at a market specifically, but there were all kinds of stalls on the streets and we turned a corner and I saw these and couldn't resist!

  4. Heather & Meg: Actually, you eat the seeds! (Like Persephone!). You cut it in half, and it's all pithy with these gorgeous juicy seeds. It's kind of magical to eat -- a mess -- but so worth trying sometime.

  5. love the photo. You know the only time I ate a piece of one was in the 4th grade when the teacher brought some in to share with the class, because so many of us had never tried one...LOL I made an impact as I still remember the teacher, the classroom and the event.

  6. Oh, I love pomegranates! I don't think I've eaten one since I was in Egypt five years ago. The closest I've come is cran-pomegranate juice. It just doesn't compare.
