I truly thought that this year summer is here to stay, that winter has given a miss to the part of the world in which I live. As you may have noticed, my blog readers, I do not wear trousers in summer. I can not tolerate cloth touching my skin in the extreme heat and high humidity here in Israel.
How happy I was last night to finally hear the thunder and lightning tearing the sky, heralding cooler weather. It rained for barely 10 minutes .The sun came out this morning as if nothing had happened and cool enough to wear my first trousers this winter!
You can see how dry the earth in these pictures. The rain was not enough to quench the ground’s thirst.
This bouganvilla plant does well precisely because of the shortage of water
I pray that the rain will be plentiful this winter, enough to refill all the aquifers, clean our skies and bring hope for another spring.
Have a wonderful weekend!
