Garden abundance

pomegranate
figs

various herbs in square foot garden plots
These photos were taken recently in a local organic garden.
This garden grows food for use in several local restaurants.
So much to be thankful for.

Linked to Meri's garden joy.

  2. so beautiful. i have always had a crush on pomegranates. and once...i dreamed my feet suddenly became roots that drove deep into the earth and looking up into the sky my arms became branches...and suddenly i was an ancient fig tree..laden with fruit. and yes, i love figs eaten directly from the shady sweet branches...with little crystal drops of honey on their bottoms because they are so ripe and longing to be enjoyed.

    thanks for the beauty and the stirring of memories.

  3. Me, too, both! We have some fig trees that bear fruit some years and then some not. But no pomegranates...they are so fecund! Thank you for sharing your joy, gemma, xoO

  6. Easy to see why pomegranates are symbols of the feminine divine -- tough on the outside, full of juicy creativity inside.

  9. Wonderful shots of such incredible fruit and herbs - the true bounty of summer!

    Pomegranites are a huge favorite of mine...my most worn earrings are silver pomegranites from Mexico...magical, I say!
