Today’s Flowers in the Golan

blue thistle golan israelglobe thistle
These globe thistle flowers were growing all over the hillsides when we visited Banias in the Golan Heights, Israel last June.

They give the hills a pretty purplish look.

The Golan is a beautiful place to visit, with many places to hike and mountains to view.

Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for featuring flower followers who share photos in a fun fashion.

In Greese ( Samos-island ) I saw same nice flowers when we went there our summer holidayweek in july. ;-)

Yen says

Beautiful! I love that first shot:)Mine is posted HERE. Happy Today's Flower!~

Gemma says

Lovely! And that first pic especially is fascinating! The colour intrigues me because here in Australia, I have only seen a darker purple thistle flower and ours is much smaller!

I love thistle. The yellow birds here love it. I enjoyed looking at your photos, they were very pretty.

These photos of the Golan are lovely and they confirm why Israel would want to maintain their places there. And the thistle is a great capture. Thanks for sharing.
