Steadfast

The hurricane-force winds toppled giant trees all over town, and yet this little pomegranate managed to stay securely attached to its branch.

What a lovely symbol -- and natural ornament -- as we head into the holiday season.

Wow, glad it survived and I thought it WAS a Christmas decoration when I first saw it- it's nature's own festive offering!

Funny how a huge, mature tree can fly across the street and little one holds on tight. I love the contrast in colors. Perfect for this time of year!
