We haven’t had enough rain in Israel this winter, but at the same time it is hard to complain about sunny skies, 70 degree temperatures, and light breezes.
I offered AM a trip to the beach last Wednesday afternoon, which he turned down (!) in favor of a tiyul (hike) because he loves following the different colored trail markers. We never found the markers, but we (the kids and I) did see some lovely wildflowers blooming just minutes from our house. On Friday, the kids had dentist appointments early in the morning and whoops! we didn’t send them to school, but rather loaded them into the car. We met my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, nephew, and niece at Nachal Halilim and took an easy (read: downhill) hike. There were wildflowers! And a cave! And a picnic at the end! I love summer winter!

Miss M says daisy. Not right, but I don’t know either.
Very pretty, but also no idea.
A very pretty and fragrant blooming tree in Ya’ar Ben Shemen. The bees were loving it. A little help?
