Water bottles filled, hats on and suncream in our backpacks...and were off for a nature walk in our own city - a hill filled with beauty...

view from the titora hill



sabra fruit - spikey on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside

a little friend we met on the way



the surrounding area

lovely, so delicate and yellow

a fig tree

After our walk we went into the forest for a picnic - a lovely breeze kept us cool...

resting under the pine trees


Hope you are all enjoying your weekend too xxx

    i wish i was with you on that lovely walk! i just started reading amos oz's memoir and while it mostly takes place in jerusalem (at least so far) i've thought of you several times while reading. he is a beautiful writer. have you read it?

    Beautiful nature all around you and it seems possible to catch the smell of the fruits and herbs.
    We have the first rain since about seven weeks today and I love the smell of the wet earth!!
