Days 126 and 127 of the Papa’s Walk Challenge!
On Saturday, near the end of my walk, I noticed a pomegranate bush in the side yard of a neighbor’s home that was full of ripe, red, pomegranate fruit. I decided to keep my eyes peeled for pomegranate bushes as I walked on Sunday, and found 6 of them over a course of 2.5 miles. All of the bushes had ripe fruit on them – some of the fruit had burst on the bush, revealing the red, juicy seeds inside.
