Dear Robyn and FüsunK,

This is my favourite of the set "A Day in the Life of a Pomegranate". The Cotoneaster berries are just perfect for this creation..spawned in our garden just outside of my office door.

Thank you both,

Dad / Ian

Ian Your whole series is beautiful, colourful, imaginative, scary....

Like this one best. As you say, the cotoneaster berries look good there, almost as if they are saying: "If I eat all my compost, one day I'll get to be as big as that, too, won't I Mommy..?" And Mommy replies, "Yes dear, you'll look berry nice indeed.."

Fond wishes, Hazel

I wonder how you ever get any time to be in your office dear Ian if this is what it's like just outside the door. We can only get pomegranates in the supermarket - I think I'll go and buy some to hang in my garden - then I can pretend :)

Greetings dear friend, Amelia

Dear Hazel and Amelia,

I like the pretend bit best of all, Amelia, Let's encourage each other to celebrate the joy of imagination. Don't worry too much about my office work, for that deserves to be imagined as a geological sedimentary system with the oldest compressed at the bottom. Having just made it to retirement, it seems that the time spent in the garden or with imagination was valid way of life. Keep up the pottery and the yoga, the camera and the wandering, the mothering and the grandmothering and never let any of that rest!

And how pleased I am, dear Hazel, that you have enjoyed the imaginary and discovered it is quite real, for life does have its beauty, colour and scary bits!

Fond regards,
