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!
