A WALK INTO THE SUNSET AT THE SHFAYIM BEACH NORTH OF TEL AVIV


Sea Daffodil - Strandlilie - Chavazelet HaHof - Pancratium maritimum, native to the Mediterranean region, growing at the coastal beaches in the sand. The big beautiful white flowers bloom in summer, each one only one day, with a delicate fragrance of exotic lily scent! They are pollinated by the hawk moth - den Taubenschwaenzchen :-).



Beach Evening Primrose - Abendblume - Nachtkerze - Ner HaLeila - Oneothera drummondii - growing on the beach near the water, in warm or hot climate. The big yellow flowers open at sunset, ready to get pollinated by night insects.

Wow, was für Bilder!
Ich weiß gar nicht, was mir besser gefällt - diese wunderbaren, unglaublich schönen Blüten oder die Landschaft in der sie wachsen.
Dagegen kommt mir hinter dem Mond gleich links doch eher langweilig und fade vor.
Als Nasenmensch würde ich auch gerne ihren Duft riechen. Na und die Krönung wäre ein Bild vom Taubenschwänzchen an der Strandlilie.
Heute sehnsüchtige Grüße

Such a different view of the shore than the one we frequent. We don't get blooms of any sort at our beaches. Lovely!
