Signs of Winter in the Holy Land

The result of the first good rain.

I saw this in Ofra.  It's big and already dying.  It's the Crocus hyemalis, Winter Crocus, כרכום חורפי ,زعفران I haven't seen any here in Shiloh yet, but I haven't taken too many walks during daylight or at all.

But my husband has joined my next door neighbor harvesting our olives. 

The neighbor has a few olive trees and he will take the olives to a press for olive oil.  They always give us some.

This tree was planted before we chose this spot to live and build on.  Our house is next to a public path.  It has grown enormous in the thirty years it's here.
