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.
