Rain! The sweet smell and feel of light rain finally returned to the Jerusalem Hills. We have not seen any rain for about half a year, which is normal. That's why it is so exciting to see it now, in its season. Here are some scenes from yesterday's walk through the woods, down just two terraces from my house.
The acorns and the olives were all wet and glistening.
The cypress had bright leaves, "bombelach" (cones), and even yellow flowers.
The thirsty lichens seemed to be drinking it all in.
