An Important Life Lesson I Learned From My Pomegranate Tree

Picture of a pomegranate tree with red blooming flowers. The tree looks more like a large bush and is on the front lawn of a house.

About 7–8 years ago, we planted a pomegranate tree in a pot and had it on our back patio. We were not very kind to that poor tree; often forgetting to water it. A number of times I was convinced we killed it, only to be surprised it would feebly make a comeback. Granted, it never produced a single pomegranate, but it was able to produce a few green leaves.
