Sorry; more Pomegranate flowers

Thursday 14 May, 2015 by Uncle Spike

I know…. it’s only been a few days since featuring the start of the pomegranate flowers, but they don’t last long, so I feel able to abuse my position as blog owner and dish out some more shots that I took just a few hours ago.

The flower buds start off so simple, then they lengthen considerable before opening out into these bright red flowers, nestled into a darker red vase-looking base – quite extraordinary.

The vibrancy of the colour is something else.

And don’t they look like sesame seeds floating in the centre? 🙂

Here is a shot that clearly shows the darker coloured waxy-looking ‘vase’ that the flower is presented in. Considering in winter these pomegranate bushes are nothing but a tangle of bare prickly branches, one has to respect good old Mrs. Nature!
