Short vacation by the Sea of Galilee

Hello dear readers,

Happy Valentine Day!

This pot of cyclamens is what I received today.  I am afraid they won't last as the climate is too warm for them.  I'll try to prolong their life by watering them with ice cubes.  Wow, the flowers and leaves are so beautiful!





We took advantage of the beautiful sunny days and spent a short while by the lake.  Again we
stayed at the Scot Hotel which we love.

Usually, this time of  year is winter at its coldest with cloudy skies and rain.  But something strange is going on.  It's as if winter forgot us.  Here are a few photos.  You will notice the bright sky, not a cloud to be seen. The air is clear and the water calm and blue.







The only minis I was able to create are another set of jute garden pieces for a beloved friend
who justly deserves them. Since it won't be a surprise, I can show you a photo.



A very warm welcome to my new followers, AniKristine, X, CristinaKoivurinteen Akka.  Thank you all for following.

Now I'll go visit your blogs and catch up with all the posts I missed this week

Hugs and Blessings

  8. Dear Drora, enjoy your vacation on this lovely place with the beautiful weather, it will do you well. Your friend will be happy to receive this wonderful gift from you :D! The cyclamen has a beautiful red color. If you water the plant : not in the pot, but put the pot on a saucer and pour just a little water on the saucer! Cyclamen don't like wet feet ;)!
    Happy Valentine's Day to you!
    Hugs, Ilona
