Trip of The Month Anemones at Be’eri

anemones beeri d1523

Great news! Anemones have begun to appear in the Jewish National Fund’s Be’eri forest. Take out your calendars and begin planning a trip to the forest’s Re’im Recreation Area, for within a week or two the brilliant blossoms will mingle with emerald green grasses in a blend that will simply take your breath away.

In Latin, anemone means “daughter of the wind”, a name bestowed on this superb flower because it blooms despite harsh winter weather. While anemones further north bloom in purple and even white, here all the anemones are a heart-colored red. So impressive are the anemones that at one time farmers fed their chickens anemone leaves, in the belief that this would increase the number of eggs they laid!

Testimonials
Dear Aviva and Shmuel,
It was hectic getting back to work and to our everyday routines after our trip to Eretz Yisrael. It was "truly the trip of a lifetime". The three days that we spent with Shmuel touring the Judean Desert and the Negev were exceptional. Shmuel's energy, enthusiasm and knowledge made that part of our journey all the more memorable for us. . .
