Our backyard gets a pomegranate shrub

The new kid on the block. A pomegranate shrub which I hope gives us fruit. Any idea if it is realistic to see fruit this season or will it take a couple of seasons?

A couple of seasons ago, Clint decided to trim one of our bushes near the backyard seat wall because it was getting a little gangly. Perhaps he got overzealous about the project because by the time he was done, there was only a few pathetic little twigs poking out from the soil and mulch.

The bush was traumatized and, unfortunately, it never recovered.

This a beautiful photo of a pomegranate. I hope my shrub will one day produce something that remotely resembles how delectable this pomegranate looks.

We finally had to give up and this past week, we planted a sparkling new pomegranate shrub. I had seen gorgeous pomegranate trees while in Rome and thought they looked beautiful. I am not sure how this shrub will do in our backyard.

I hope to get fruit from it and I will definitely keep it away from Clint’s shears.
