I could not have done it without my abundant crop of pomegranates. This year they have been wonderful. It should be no surprise that this tree carries the varietal name 'wonderful' We had such a crop that even after giving many away, David and I spent hours getting out the precious juice, freezing it, drinking it, making pomegranate syrup for margaritas, just eating the seeds and finally making the sorbet pictured above. I have blogged about the crop and photographed it and now I have a silver award to post on my blog, ( not sure yet how to do that) The tree has never been pruned and the time has come to do something about that. Selective pruning will begin in the spring in the hope that the tree will continue to bear fruit through the process. I really wish now that I had been more careful about its care.

MY WONDERFUL POMEGRANATE TREE
I had no idea that the winners of the photography competition, sponsored by Gardening Gone Wild, were announced today. An email from a fellow blogger alerted me to the fact that I had won a Silver Medal for my pomegranate picture in this month's competition. There were so many wonderful photographs and I feel honored to have been selected. Congratulations to Charlotte, at Life in a Day, who received the Gold Medal. Here are the results and a link to all the photographs in the competition.
