Red flower fields… Amsterdam in Israel.

Over the Pesach break, we drove on the 375 a few times (outside Beit Shemesh, in Emek Ha’Ella area) and noticed the breathtaking red flower field on the side of the road. It’s normally a gorgeous area on a bad day, but this was something totally cool… something I’ve never noticed in my Israeli life before.

The flower is the Calanit or כלנית and it’s all over this area of the country but this field is pure amazing (FYI, my photos are not doing it justice).

I couldn’t help but think of the tulip gardens around Amsterdam. Kinda totally different, since this not a manicured field, but it’s the closest I’ll get for now.
