Israel In Bloom

Israelis love to be outdoors, and there’s no better time of year than the spring. The weather is warm and pleasant, the countryside is green and fresh, and the wild flowers are blooming.

In a country that most of the year can be a rather dull brown, the spring is the ultimate season to explore Israel’s nature reserves and parks. Enjoy the view with pictures of Israel in bloom.

Most of Israel’s wild flowers are protected species today, and one of the big success stories of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, was its campaign some years ago to stop people picking wild flowers.

Anemones turn the Negev Desert red. Every year during Spring, the desert comes alive with a carpet of red anemones attracting thousands of visitors.
