Cactus enjoys our cool winter

.

Crisp December skies,


a little rain now and then, and the cactus hill in Meitar gets interesting!


Blue skies for SkyWatch Friday.


The pictures are fun when enlarged.

I like the perspective, especially on that first shot.

Beautiful shots!! It reminds me of the Arizona desert.

So beautiful and reminds me of Arizona. To think that so much of the world is similar - people and places. Too bad we can't just celebrate our togetherness. Happy weekend Dina!

Envy you both the sky and the cacti!
And a LITTLE rain (compared to much ...)

I love the first picture with the sun hiding behind the cactus !

Dina said...

Namaki, I am listening now to the music on the Desert Wings video on your blog. Nice!

Friends, thanks for your comments. I have never been to Arizona. I guess Israel's desert is the only one I know.

I don't know why I didn't realise that you would have cacti in Israel. Always imagining them in Mexico or over in the Americas. So I learnt something new today.
Have a lovely weekend ahead and thank you so much for stopping by my blog this week.
I have a friend from Israel so I enjoy your images. thank you.

I love cacti, their different shapes and sizes . To cold for them to grow where I live.

I do not connect usually cacti and winter, but here they are...

You know I love these! :-)

I love them too. So big.... and outside.
Mine are just small .... and inside.
But they are still alive :)
