Pictures of life in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Hills. And since August 2013 also a look at the northern Negev, my new home.
Wow never seen something like that before although I'v seen a black rose in this mans collection, he was most unwilling to share it with anyone and claimed there were only a few in the whole world.
Yeah, D. Rebel, black is beautiful, all right. So the man wouldn't even show his rose to anyone? Well, now that you mention it, I am not about to guide anyone to the secret place here, either.

Hi Dina, thanks for visiting my blog! Your blog is very interesting, looking forward to visit Jerusalem Hills through it :)
Around the World, thanks for including Jerusalem Hills! I see you're doing a lot of work in your blog world. Ahalan Olga from over in Tel Aviv. Welcome to the other side of our little country!
I've always wanted to visit Jerusalem hills and explore the great history of the area. I've always wished I had went into your field...I love your photos and writings,Mary
I don't know what this flower would be, never seen one before. Looks kind of lily-like though.
Dina, google "black calla lily." It looks like your flower! However, I would not think it would grow wild. The "elephant ear" caladiums beside it are also a bulb, so I bet somebody planted these some time back.
Wow never seen that before. Better keep it a secret Dina :o)
Fantastic!Thanks for sharing.
The flower is a Jack-In-The-Pulpit (Arisaema). The flaplike spathe is green or purplish brown, often striped, and curves gracefully over the club-shaped spadix ;(the "Jack" or preacher in his canopied pulpit). Flowers tiny, at base of spadix; staminate and pistillate flowers often on separate plant. Leaves 1 or 2, long-stalked, 3-parted. Fruit a cluster of scarlet berries, 1-3 ft. This is a woodland plant.
After getting all kinds of suggestions and doing some research, I now think the flower is a Palestine arum, Arum palaestinum, in Hebrew luf eretzyisraeli.Thanks for all who helped.Meanwhile, I am discovering more of them over on the east side of our "mountain."
Oh, and apparently the plant'scommon names are Adam-and-Eve plant, black calla lily, caladium, cuckoopint, Italian arum, Solomon's lily, dragon arum.It is toxic to any poor animals which taste the plant. Liz--the American Jack-in-the-pulpit is related, but not exactly the same.
