The train on the plain

.


Usually if I have to travel to Tel Aviv I take the train; but this time I was on a bus, taking pictures of the speeding trains. 


A train on the bridge.

Beauty in simplicity. It looks like American farmland! Not what I imagine when I think of Israel.

Sandi, this was in the northern part of the Negev desert. There is quite a lot of agriculture there.
Now is the "brown season" after half a year of dry season. Soon the winter rains will start and all the land will turn green!

Israel is such a tiny country in the east-west direction, clean speedy trains are perfect. For people who travel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem or vice versa, it would be a shame to clog the road up with cars.

Alice, here in the northern Negev, when I go by train or bus, I see sunflower fields, field crops, cotton, vineyards, and various fruit and nut trees.

I'd be right at home there.

Some farmers around here will plant an entire field in sunflowers. It is odd to see so many plants ready to harvest but it happens. I have to pay about $50.00 US Dollars to get a 50 pound bag or sack filled with sunflower seeds and pieces. Sometimes there are some black hulls in them. I get or buy the little black sunflower seeds because they have a high percentage of oil in them. That helps the wildlife out especially when it is very cold here. And any seed that drops on the ground is snapped up by any animal, including my dog if I allowed it.

Shalom Abe, nice to see you again! Thanks for your interesting input about sunflowers.
All the best to you.
