Hedge Apples and Pomegranates
We gave a baby shower for my daughter and invited close friends and family to the formal tea. The arrangements for the table and at the front door couldn’t have been simpler- nor less expensive. Sure, we bought the pomegranates at the grocery store because they don’t grow here in central Ohio. Everything else came from the garden.
Hedge apples come from Osage-orange trees; small, dense trees planted as hedge rows throughout the Midwest. The trees are not particularly attractive and they do have thorns. To some the wrinkled fruits will be a nuisance. To me they produce simple and elegant decorations for the home. The chartreuse fruit is extremely fragrant and a bowlful is heavenly.
