Mt Carmel National park











In Haifa, at the top of Mt Carmel, the same Mt Carmel mentioned in the bible. Here I spent a few hours just hanging out. I regretted not bringing some food to eat, I had just a small bottle of water. I couldn't stay long because I was getting hungry.I sat among the red anemones and walked around to see the other wild flowers.

I was on a quest

I was on a quest, the beloved anemone that is Israel's national flower. Besides red, they do come in other colors but I saw this lone blue one.

Dalit el Carmel




A little village about one hour bus ride away from Haifa. Each morning the Druze (a Muslim sect) men and women meets separately for prayers. I'm always amazed when people don't have a job to go to. We, in the USA, are always at work. Time for even prayers is non existent.

I'm on a quest




Well, I was on a quest, in February, to search for the places where the red anemones grow in profusion. Its the national flower of Israel and in Spring, they are all over the place. I found some in Be'er Sheva, though not as much as I expected. Most of its habitat have been destroyed by development. But here in Mt Carmel national park, they grow unmolested. I stayed the most part of the day just gazing at these red flowers. They were all over the park. What a treat.
