It's Starting to Look Like Summer

Even though we've had late, unseasonable rains, the winter green is going brown.  There's a limit to how long they can stay green.  The strange comparisan that just went through my head concerns growth hormones many parents of short children try to get prescribed with dreams and wishes to trick the genes into making their children taller.  The hormones may get the children to grow at a younger age, but they can't really override the maximum potential the child was born with.

So, even though we've had a "record wet April and May," the wild flowers and weeds which looked so pretty a month or two ago are "aging," drying out and turning brown.

These pictures were taken at Tel Shiloh on Rosh Chodesh Iyar, (the first of the Jewish month of Iyar) less than two weeks ago.  I go there every month for Women's Prayers.  Next Rosh Chodesh will be Sivan on Friday June 3.  Women are invited.
