It is the month of March – with the hope of spring, flowers in Israel create carpets of red and purple and encourage people to climb the hill and wander through the valleys

Nature is one of those freedoms that is a god given blessing and cannot be easily taken away.This year it has been a respite for those seeking the freedom to breathe, to look into the distance rather than the social distancing to measure Celebrate the founding of the first US National Park. You can’t set foot on the Israel National Trail yet, but start planning. The flowers slide through and we will show up to appreciate them
