Eyal (6) and I were out walking among the post-rain wildly-blooming wildflowers . . .
when he spotted this still-closed flower with curly leaves.
He gave it a little kvetch (pinch) just to help it along.
Today, ten days later, I passed and found that same flower fully opened in all its glory!
Enlarge the photo to find happy insects inside.
This is my first winter living in the Negev desert and I am positively surprised by the abundance of beautiful wildflowers.
