    pomegrante-nar

    If I were a pomegranate, I think I’d find it difficult to be humble. I don’t know why they fascinate me so much, but there’s something more to these fruit than their rivals.  I’m still looking for a way to truly reveal their beauty. For now this will have to do. Here’s to the return of pomegranate season.  One of the truly great things about being in this part of the world.

    Seems like this fruit has a very special place with turkish people…. any idea if its something to do with folklore or something??

    Pomegranates possess meaning for Turks and Anatolians in general. On New Year’s people smash pomegranates on their doorsteps at home and at work in order to bring “bereket” (loosely meaning prosperity).
