    1. Thanks JayCee, it turned out that way by accident but I'm happy about it. I originally only wanted a garden in shades of green, but I don't understand much about gardening.

  2. I don't have any red flowers in the garden, but your flowers certainly do stand out beautifully.

    1. They are indeed a good source of distraction at times.

  4. This is the bougainvillea that has been climbing for several years on the ancient olive tree.

  5. I know how nice it is to have greenery in the garden in summer! But those red flowers are a wonderful bonus .
    Your bougainvillea is way ahead of ours

    1. The bougainvillea has been growing for many years, covering the olive tree.

  10. It's too cold in Winter here for us to grow anything too exotic; I would love to grow Lemons. We do have plenty of Roses at the moment, but nothing as dramatic as yours. My favourite colour in the garden is deep red. Your garden is beautiful.

  11. I have a lemon tree that does not produce lemons. My whole garden is the result of chance and luck, all in all it turned out fine.

  12. Beautiful! Love the bright colors and the fallen petals. That cactus on the bottom is especially nice. I wish we could grow things like that here.

  13. The cactus in the middle is called the mother-in-law's chair, guess why...

  14. I also wonder what its name. Have to find out. Yael

  15. I think it is a Schlumbergia, we call it Christmas cactus because here it is a house plant flowering around Christmas time.

  18. Your garden looks lovely , Yael. Mine is maainly gree now, The cherry trees were pale pink flowers and have now dropped a cascade of confetti. We still have drifts of blue bells, those of snowdrops having dissapeared, otherwise most are small flowers of varying shades of yellow. I do have peach and apricot trees in our tunnel and the fruit is developing well. I enjoy the peace, which is an illusion because the countryside is really quiet noisy, with animals and birds, the wind in the trees and the sound of water in the stream, But its all beautiful.

  19. It is a joy to see all the red and green in your garden. I'm wondering what kinds of birds come to your garden. I'm wondering what it sounds like when the birds are singing. Thank you so much for these glimpses into some of what grows and thrives in the land of Israel against all odds.

    1. There are many birds here, I don't recognize all of them, there are two crows that come to eat the cats' food, and many songbirds especially in the morning.
