The peeling earth


 The little bit of rain that fell last Sunday was enough to let a jackal or maybe dog leave some footprints.
But today the "winter" temperature soared to 30 C  or 86 F here in the Beer Sheva region!
The ground is again dry and parched. 

Grandson Eyal had fun peeling off pieces of crusty earth.
 Cracked dried clay flinging could become the newest Olympic sport, as far as he is concerned.

There are fascinating textures in these cracks, Dina.

I absolutely love the textures on the earth - and these are really nice photos.

Keeping fingers crossed for some steady rain, not just downpours...
