Hi! How are you this Friday night? We still have rain and gray days here. I need to see the sun!

I love your pictures. I haven't had a pomegranate since the kids left. I used to put the seeds in salads around the holidays. I will have to buy one soon.

Hi, Koralee,
Your post reminds me of when I was a young girl. Pomegranates were one of my favorite treats!! I haven't had one in a long while so maybe I need to get to the grocers and enjoy one again. Hope you have a beautiful autumn weekend. Blessings to you, dear friend! Vicki

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Koralee... your posts are so cute, I love it when you show your shoes... you have such cute little feet! And your new shoes are beautiful! Did I tell you I got some sock monkey slippers? Yippee! I have never tasted a pomegranate that I can remember??? I must try one... I love all fruit... Bisous... Julie Marie

Yummmm!!!!
I should have snapped a photo... my daughter and I just happened to split one tonight!!!! How fun! We have a ball just picking out all of the seeds and popping them into our mouths! Ours was really ripe, though and juice was squirting everywhere! Finally, she gave up and I worked just filling a bowl with the "kernels". Mmmmmm. :))
You know, they kinda remind me of the hard work involved in enjoying crab legs.... a lot of time getting to the goodies, but you just don't feel like you're getting that much! Thanks for sharing these mouthwatering photos!
Hugs,
Christina

Ok..now you speak of MY color...not just red, but deep, rich, garnet red! To die for..I don't know why it moves me so...but it does! I love your shoes too...SO cute!
I hope everyone likes the peanut butter popcorn, it is our family fav. even the married boys want their wives to make it on Sunday nights now! Thanks :D

Rose said...

Love your new shoes. I havent actually tried pomegranates! I wouldnt know how to eat them...I guess you eat the seeds? It certainly is a pretty fruit isnt it.

Jacqueline said...

I've loved pomegranates since childhood. I just eat them as they are, seeds as well !!!! I can't be doing with spitting the seeds out like some of my friends did !!!! Too much messing about !!!! The only thing that's not nice is when you mistakingly eat a bit of pith !!!!....YUK. XXXX

sarah-jane down the lane said...

I dont know a thing about pomegranate season!how exciting! Here it is fruit season in terms of Apples, pears, sloes, damsons etc. but pomegranates are much more glamorous! Lucky you,

have a lovely weekend, Sarah x

redorgrayart said...

how very imaginative these images are and what a"model" ...sweet and round....I may do a photo shoot too and will link you back...

becky said...

I never had one.Ive seen them in the store but never bought any.Great photo though.

Janean said...

It's been so long, I forgot the taste of them. A quick trip to the store can cure that! Gorgeous, gorgeous pix. FAB shoes!

Carol said...

Memories.......of our kids eating them right off the tree in California....lovely stains on their shirts!! Still my daughter's favorite.
I love them for color and interest in my Pear Salad!! Nice for the holidays.

maría cecilia said...

Hello Koralle, me fascinan las granadas!!! Have one tree that gives me plenty of them in april-may.
Muchos cariños

Gabriel Girl said...

LOVE pomegranates! Although I usually make sure I'm wearing a bib of some sort when trying to dismantle them ;-)

Beth Dunn said...

They are so good for you! I need to get one immediately and eat it! xoxo

Wendy McDonagh-Valentine said...

I remember having a friend in grammar school who would bring pomegranates for snack in school all the time. She'd eat them one little piece at a time. I haven't thought about that friend in so long. Thanks for the memory!! :)

Now want some!
Lovely post.

FrenchBlue said...

Dear Koralee,
I never had these as a kid, like so many have. I love listening to the stories about eating them and the mess they make but so worth it all~ Sour, I know but what a treat!

Maria said...

So glad you're enjoying the weekend!

the paris house said...

Hi Koralee, I love all of your sweet images, the ruby shoes are beautiful!! and I must head over to get that popcorn recipe, it sounds yummy. I try and drink pomegranate juice everyday, I mix it with the juice of one lime and top it off with a splash or so of sparkling water..I agree with Lenorenevermore it is a fabulous antioxidant.
Wishing you a beautiful Sundy

paperhill said...

love your shoes!! i'm off to check out the popcorn recipe! hope all is well! xo

mise said...

Koralee, you always have the loveliest shoes!

Tish Jett said...

Koralee,

I'm so excited you found me. Now I've found you. Your blog is wonderful. Pomegranates are very big over here. They apparently have some magic vitamin or mineral, but I think the real reasons are because : #1 they're so beautiful and #2 they take forever to eat so slim Frenchwomen think they're eating a lot and take their sweet time savoring the little bits.

Thank you for your visit.

I'll be back.

Warm regards,
Tish

koralee said...

Angela....what a dear you are...I am so happy to have been able to meet you too. I will be watching for your lovely blog to come out soon...I so want to follow it! xoxoxo

m.e (Cathie) said...

pomegranates are just soo gorgeous, love the pics ♥

paperbird said...

your photographs are amazing- I wish you could come teach me a few of your tricks- I love pomegranates just by themselves but they are so great on salads. And pretty too!

The Dreaming Bear said...

Hi there! Can't remember how I found your blog, but so glad I did! Love your beautiful pictures! Thanks so much for sharing! I LOVE pomegranates! Love them on salads, especially, but also on hearty toast with soft cheese. Naked's pomegranate/cherry juice is my fave too. Cheers!

Kristin said...

My little sis and I used to each take a half and eat the seeds straight from the fruit. Mmmmmmmm!

Laura said...

beautiful photos.

I eat them by cracking the fruit apart and picking each little piece out by hand. One at a time. I eat them slowly to avoid staining everything in site (except my hands).

KarenB said...

I'm ashamed to admit that I got two pomegranates to dry for my Fall decor. I've never eaten one. Bad, bad, Karen. :-(

katrina said...

Red is perhaps my most favorite color of all. Your photos are spectacular!
