CHOSEK MOUNTAIN - GOLAN HEIGHTS - ISRAEL


As we do almost every year at this time in autumn, we went yesterday to look for these yellow and pink greeters of fall, the Sternbergia and the Crocus.



Sternbergia clusiana, chelmonit gdola, חלמונית גדולה



Colchicum feinbruniae, Feinbrun's Autumn Crocus, sitvanit ha tashbez,  סתוונית התשבץ




My husband took so many gorgeous photos, that I have a hard time deciding what to choose for this blog post.


The flowers are nestled between the rocks of the forest and are just so beautiful.








The weather was wonderful yesterday, warm and sunny with blue sky, another happy day!






Some lovely autumn colors downhill

Uri's photos are such a pleasure to look at. I've never seen a crocus like the purple one with an amazing pattern and texture on it.

Liebe Yael,

Die Zeit er Krokusse ist bei uns lange vorbei.
Einen schönen Restsonntag wünscht dir

I had thought crocuses were early spring flowers, didn’t know autumn crocuses. It must have been joy to find purple or yellow fairies hiding behind the rocks. You look so relaxed, Yael, so does your dog. Only Uri was busy taking pictures?

Such colorful flowers on the rocks! I like to see you smiling with your dog!

It has been so long since I visited you. My blog had been sleeping.
Have a good weekend,Yael.
