  1. I want to open the shutters and look out of that window!

  2. I hope those are the big, jucy pomegranates, those that split up when they're ripe. I'm so there already.

  3. I love the shot of the house but you know that Pomegranate caught my eye!

  4. What a wonderful patina on the house walls with their pomegranate hues. And the pomegranate -- one of my favorite fruits for taste, beauty, and mythology! Beautiful photos!

  5. Ah, one of the 7 fruits of Israel, the rimonim! I love that shot. It is begging to be picked and eaten.

  6. @ The Things We Carried,
    wouldn't we all?
    It is the loveliest house imaginable,
    I'll have more images to come!

    @ lakeviewer said...
    Yes, they are!

    @ Sandi McBride said...
    I wonder why that Pomegranate caught your eye!

    Need a smile, dear readers?
    swing over to Sandi's blog, and read all about accidental her pomegranate, er, hibiscus - or was it the other way round ??? - plantation! *grin*

    I fell in love with that pomegranate color the moment I spotted the house just before sunset one evening and returned to it the next morning (these are the morning images).

    The lady of the house picked some ripe pomegranates for me. They are on my kitchen counter right now. I don't know if I'll have the heart to eat them. They are way too beautiful and inspiring to look at! ;-)

  8. Wish I had a fresh pomie tree out my window instead of frozen seeds in the freezer...still either way, fresh or frozen, they are the best preventive for colds and flu IMO...

  9. I so love the colors of both photos. The actually remind me of a dusty sunset when the world feels so still and serene.

  10. Loving both photos.

    Loving Italy,

  11. You went a long way from Rome...

  12. You did a beautiful job capturing the light behind the pomegranate. The transluscent leaves contrast with the rich hues of the fruit and the light illuminates those spiders webs. Gosh, I sound like I might actually be learning something in my class ;)

  13. That weathered terra cotta against the intense blue of the sky is incredible.

    @ ParisBreakfasts:
    I wouldn't mind either, moving into a house with a pomegranate tree! ;-)

    @ Shadow:
    Look at the next post to see the view from that window! ;-)

    @ Vickie:
    Yes, that's what I felt around that house,
    serene. It has a magic aura! :-)

    @ Paz:
    The area north of Venice is immensely beautiful.

    @ spacedlaw:
    I arrived here straight from Rome! ;-)


  16. @ hexe:
    I am sure your profs are very happy about your progress. When are you going to get that degree? ;-)

    @ Eileen @ Passions to Pastry:
    I agree! :-)

  17. Beautiful Merisis. Enjoy your Italian days. I would love to be there with you, to escape the wet, cold days of Trondheim........

    We are going to Poland on Wednesday, hopefully the weather is better there.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
