A slice of a pomegranate


Historically, Downey was a town of orange orchards, avocado groves, and walnut trees. So it was somewhat surprising how many pomegranate trees we passed last week on Dinwiddie Street.

Some scholars think that it was the pomegranate that the snake used to tempt Eve in the Garden of Eden. Song of Solomon 4:3 has this to say in reference to the tempting pomegranate, "Your lips are like a scarlet thread, And your mouth is lovely. Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate Behind your veil."
