KALANIT — Anemones

This is the time of the year, as it is the midwinter here in Finland, that I do so miss these scenes of Israel.

In Israel, February is the month when the first trees start to blossom and also the spring flowers, like the Anemones aka Kalanit, in Hebrew, put their colourful show on all around the country after the winter rains.


Of the trees, it is the Almond tree that bursts out forth as the Numero Uno!
Oh – the fragrance and the feeling of giddiness that comes over one when tis life and warmth again after the short spell of winter in Israel! The winter in there is more like the typical Irish summer, or a terrible summer here in Finland.

Tis for now yet again – Rii xx.
