The last days of August present us with the Chazavim, the Sea Squill, which in spite of its English and German name (Meerzwiebel) actually blooms not only near the shores, but everywhere, even at the Golan Heights, the Galilee and in the Negev desert. Their appearance is a sure sign that summer ends and fall arrives.
There are various kinds, from sweet to sourish and from bright red to almost purple, like this very beautiful one with the lovely crown, from my friend's garden. (Thank you for the photo Aiva!)
Pomegrantes are one of the seven species which according to the Bible the Land of Israel is blessed with.
See the post about a "Walk into the Sunset", some days back, with more photos, and information about them.
And as always the credit for the wonderful photos goes to my husband Uri!
