I knew I was going to make a second essence on this particular trip, but had no idea what it was — and then this one bloom waved at me. I hurried and photographed and made an essence, fearing that the flower would drop off before I photographed it.  The flower didn’t fall off, nor was she the only pomegranate tree around!  Another gentle powerhouse, this essence opened up a whole new perspective of the world for me.
