Pomegranates - fruit of our labour II

My husband has always wanted a pomegranate to bonsai. So part of his last Christmas present was a pair of punica granatum nana seedlings. Poor little things - they were bundles of bare twigs when they arrived, but he has carefully nursed them back to health. They have repaid him with loads of pretty flowers, and yesterday our first fruit ripened. We nibbled at some of the seeds, and the rest he put into a glass of sparkling rose for me. So pretty! And they are a superfood, don't you know?
