This is our neighborhood in the lovely little town on the hills of the Shomron where we live. On a clear day you would spot the sea on the horizon, and the skyscrapers of Tel Aviv to the left.

Images of a morning walk with my husband and Ella in a sunny break between the rains.

The first wild narcissus started to bloom, dressed in light green narrow leaves, their pretty stars bridal white, embellished with yellow chalices in the middle.

We met Ella's Labrador friend Rico, and they had a go - running and jumping, chasing each other, being frolicsome and happy.

The dry season starts here in May, not a drop of water falling from the sky for many months. By the end of October we are really quite yearning for rain, and this year we got lucky early. It is raining on and off for almost two weeks now, and the downpour is strong and plenty. But when the rain stops for some hours, the sun is always peeping out from the clouds. We scarcely have melancholic misty days, or slow and soft dripping rain for long periods of time, either it is raining heavily or the sun is pleasantly shining.

I love where I live, and I am thankful for each and every good day.

Dear Yael - Your walk looks nice and comfortable for the nice views with your loved ones. I smiled to imagine Ella and Rico enjoying freedom, chasing after each other. The first wild narcissus reminded me of how our climate is different. October has been warmer and mostly sunny here, but we had rain on Sunday and Monday, and it’s going to be colder ahead. I look forward to the deepening colors of autumn foliage.
