Postcard from the Alhambra, Granada

Late afternoon sunlight

Did you know that Granada means pomegranate?

Yes, and hand grenade and grenadine

Daughter went to Armenia and brought back pomengranates which seem to be the symbol of said country.

Very very sunny in Biarritz today, hope ditto in Granada.

Surprisingly, that's one of the things I do know. A pomegranate is a Granatapfel in German. Makes sense, doesn't it? :-)

Hope you're having a lovely time.

yup, ave to say that's something I knew as well. I spent a month in Grenada (the island, not the city). They make a lot of very sweet syrup there.

Nope, I didn't know that - thanks for sharing!

Well I didn't know that! You learn something knew everyday!
