SHANA TOVA - שנה טובה ומבורכת - HAPPY NEW YEAR



The pomegranate bushes and trees growing wild in abundance along the coastline of the beautiful Kotor bay in Montenegro are a wonderful symbol for Rosh HaShana!
 May you have a good sweet year, blessed with health and joy and peace!   Shana tova!
Of course I had to take some of those lovelies home!  They are very small and hard like stones - not the variety for eating. BUT - aren't they pretty?

I'm fascinated by the colours--and I didn't know there were so many kinds of pomegranates!

I'm glad for the winter season, because I so love this fruit...and your blog!

Hi Yael, my mom used to have similar pomegranates growing in her garden - she always had a bowl full in the house for decoration. She still collects grasses and leaves, there is always some fun and interesting display in her home.

Really beautiful pictures! The Pomegranate is such a pretty fruit.

I too didn't know about the hard pomegranates. Neat!
Thank you and Uri for always zooming into the picture to show us the virtually microscopic beauty of things.

Shanah Tovah!!

They are absolutely beautiful, Yael! They would make nice seasonal/autumnal decorations. I too did not know about the hard pomegranates.

Love the photos and the scenery :)
Blessings on the new year to you and your family!

Lovely pomegranates, it must be nice to live in a country that produce them.
