Forgotten fruit

They hang on the trees like broken baubles on an abandoned Christmas tree, forgotten by the harvest, rejected by birds. Rotten, dull, dusty and muddy.

    I thik Dali includes split pomegranates in some of his paintings. You can see why he was inspired by them after looking at these pics.

      Yes, but we have so many wild trees we can’t possibly eat them all. And some are just in perilous positions. So we prefer to leave them for the birds so we can enjoy watching them enjoy the fruit! SD

      Or cut them in half and bang them on a tea towel to knock the seeds out, then sprinkle them on fruit salads or ice cream. Juice is too much like hard work, my husband did try once. Never twice! SD
