Pom Poms!

I see these at Christmastime, all the time. But until a few weeks ago, I never noticed them in the wonderful fall!

See, usually when they catch my attention, it's the dead of winter. I smile when I see them hanging like Christmas bulbs on a tree, because the cold has taken all the leaves, and there they hang, looking for all the world like God was decorating His trees for us.

But when I was riding my bike a few weeks ago, I was surprised to see them already growing on trees with leaves around them like beautiful scarves. Anyhoo, it makes sense they'd have to begin now to be ready for winter's display... but I didn't ever give it that much thought.

Anyhoo, poms are good to eat, smish and make juice, the jam from them is superb, and they are full of yummy red juice that makes your blood pump cleaner through your arteries. What a Christmas gift!

Oh, I love to ride my bike too - kinda like Angela Lansbury! I have never tried one of these beauties. I've bought several for decor....I will have to try one. They look lovely on the tree too.
