Pomegranates are everywhere in the fall in Istanbul.
Notice the gorgeous way they can cut them and open them up like
a bubbly flower.

We went to the top of a beautiful hill to one of Istanbul's most famous
writers and poets, Yahya Kemal Beyatli.
His home was humble and surrounded in peace and
pomegranate trees.
Isn't this a clever bench to commemorate a writer?
