Despite the Drought
This plant, I think it's a crocus, appears every winter after a rain or two. If there's lots of rain, they are larger and more plentiful. We, here in Israel have been suffering a very serious drought. The Bible and Chazal, our Sages, tell us that the amount of rain we receive is dependent on how we keep G-d's commandmants, how we treasure our Holy Land. The lack of suffient rain is a sign of G-d's displeasure. This tiny pathetic looking plant shows that something is lacking.
May we merit bountiful rain and may our gardens be full of these special plants every year early winter, in the right season.
