Fall Days in South Herzegovina

Pomegranates are in full bloom in the South of Europe right now. Their seeds are so healthy and tasty, and we have been plucking and buying them by the case load. 

Fall in these parts of Europe has always been special. It lingers a bit longer then in other parts of the continent. Days are warmer then usual for this time of year and the bright colors hold their own. For us that means that the days are still nice, with late fall still reminding us of how quickly everything can change...

Beni is enjoying the days in the garden, jumping around and sleeping in the sun. He also got his fur cut and thus reduced his body size in half. Easier to clean him up now, too.


Hope you're enjoying your fall days while they last. You know how it goes. One day you wake up and the trees are bare, waiting for snow to arrive...

  5. Beni is really very cute - bright-eye little scamp! I really like Pomegranates. My husband is quite fond of his glass of Pomegranate juice in the morning with his breakfast.

  6. I don't believe I've ever had a pomegranate. Maybe I'll have to take the plunge and try one. The leaves against the fence are beautiful. And Beni is just too cute. Is he a Bichon Frisé?

    1. You definitely should. They are delicious. Beni is a mix between a maltese and bichon.

  16. I like the expression on Beni's face... a bit wary, methinks. Ah pomegranates, I would love to try one again. I remember picking out seeds, with a pin of all things! No health and safety regulations in those days.
