in the heat of the summer


The middle of summer... I long so much for less humid and less hot days...
But there are things I love about summer here in Israel- the fresh fruits! Fresh figs, mangoes, passion fruits, prickly pears (or "sabres" as they are called here)....
In some evenings it is nice to go for a walk and enjoy a bit of a breeze and the last light of the day...
The smell of the frangipani...



Yesterday evening we walked with the girls to the edge of the kibbutz and lied on the grass, watching the stars and trying to see falling stars (meteor shower)...well- I guess we were a bit early and we did not see that many... but it was nice anyway.


... and Neomi finished her small bag. Helen so much wanted one too, that Neomi gave it to her as a present and now she is working on another one for herself.
Helen is taking the bag now every day with her to the daycare...

I'm just back from a holiday in France and Italy. In Italy they call the prickly pears "bastardi" and our son now knows why. He had his hand full of the prickly stuff when he tried to eat these fruits.
