Some one told me, which I naively accepted, that this is what pomegranates do when they are ripe. Anyway, this is what these two from our tree did. There is the famous painting called "The Laughing Cavaliers." Here, if you use a fair amount of imagination, we have 'The Laughing Pomegranates. Either that or two old chaps with the disgusting habit of masticating their food with their mouths open. Which ever, this pix will never be famous like the Cavaliers.
FYI we planted the tree, which we love, but found as for the fruit, we don't. So it gets the flick to the trash.
Thanks for viewing. Comments and critiques most happily sought.
