10 Great Spots to See Israel's Spring Flowers

Happy first day of spring! In Israel this is also peak wildflower season (which usually runs from mid-February to late March), so the Holy Land is already decked out in its springtime finest.

If you are ever fortunate enough to be in Israel this time of year, ISRAEL21c has compiled a list of 10 great places to see God’s glorious floral display. Including:

Lupine Hill

On the road just south of Beit Shemesh in the Elah Valley, anemones grow everywhere on the northern side of the road. But the spot that really rocks is Givat Hatourmasim (Lupine Hill) on the southern side of the road. Though purple lupine rules here, many other species are also in full bloom. Go early on Friday, or on any other day of the week, to avoid crowds.

“It’s a 10-minute hike to the top, where there is the best collection of diverse wildflowers I’ve seen anywhere,” says [Yehoshua] Halevi, who is leading three photography workshops there in the next few weeks.

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
