Happiness as Anarchy #293: Pomegranates

Nigella says to eject the seeds from a pomegranate you just cut it in half and tap it with a wooden spoon. My experience says you have to whack the hell out of it for at least five minutes in order to dislodge a tiny handful. Nevertheless, I am always stopped in my tracks by the fruit hanging on the tree, like a Christmas bauble. The stunning orange globes set against the backdrop of remarkably small leaves.
This one caught my eye in the forecourt of the Northcote Uniting Church as I wandered into a Melbourne Ukulele Festival gig.
