JPIX: Spring in Israel Edition

I love the idea that trees and flowers are blooming in Israel. Anyone who lives in the north can probably appreciate the envy I feel at this time of year. So I’ll start with Batya’s blooms:

While G6 reminds us Purim is coming, Mottel shows us Chanukah past (and here’s my Purim watercolor, too):

Thanks for your appreciation of my amateur photography skills. This collection is admirable.

G6 says

Lovely, and I'm sure a lot of hard work!

Actually, it's gotten easier. WordPress 2.7 has a great image editor. Easy to put up thumbnails.
