MORE THAN JUST A BLOGGER FRIENDSHIP


Some of you know my wonderful friend Jill from  http://glazed-over.blogspot.com.
A week ago she came for a surprise visit to Israel flying over the ocean from New York to Tel Aviv with her two young daughters. We spent some joyful days together and enjoyed each others company immensely. She will be back for summer vacation, and we have a lot more plans to do things together.


On the way to my friend Aiva in the Galilee we stopped at the anemone meadows at Minchat Meggido - a lot of rain was beating down on them the previous days and they were over the height of their bloom, but what was left was still very impressive - the wild anemones there, thousands and thousands of them, present themselves in all their variety of colors and hues, white, pink, purple, red...

We have a herb farm with a huge spice shop in Beitlechem HaGlilit - a big marvelous smelling purchase was made there: spice mixes for rice, special teas, cinnamon, granola... So many choices, hard to decide!
The flea market in Yafo was for another day - of course it could not be missed!
We all had a great and loving time together - which is stored in our memories forever!
Having a coffee break at the flea market - this is my most favorite photo of all!
See you in summer Jill! :-)

Oh, YAEL! Thank you for taking us under your wing so lovingly and showing us some of the marvels of the land. What a charmed time we had, all of us. Would that we could be next door neighbors.

À bientôt this summer, then. Can't wait!

Oh diese Tour würde auch genau meinem Geschmack entsprechen... der Gewürzladen muss ja himmlich sein... und vom Flohmarkt will ich gar nicht gross reden... die Wühlkisten mit den Kinderspielsachen haben auf mich eine magnetische Wirkung...
du weisst ja ; )
So schön, dass deine Freunde schon so bald wieder anreisen werden... werde nun gleich auch bei Jill vorbeischauen...
Herzliche Grüsse und bis bälder bisous Brigitte
