A little bit of the Mediterranean

The pomegranate seems to be happy, utterly unfazed by the heat and lack of rain this summer. Maybe it's its mates: fennel on the left and lavender on the right, just like in one of its habitats, my favorite vacation spot, the Mediterranean! It is fitting that in ancient Greece (one of my current obsessions, ancient or not), the pomegranate represented the changing seasons, as we look forward to some cooler weather this weekend.
It is a dwarf variety, so we likely won't get much in the way of fruit--but just a few for cocktail garnishes would be grand, and the foliage alone is beautiful--not to mention the gorgeous, hummingbird-attracting flowers.
