As I write this post a light dusting of snow is covering the neighborhood, yes indeed, it does snow here in Israel, because you see my friends Israel is not what you might think, and while we don't experience harsh winters, it does get cold enough in some areas to snow, to the extreme delight of the children.
So, I am so very glad that I did run around this evening bringing in all the small containers from my garden which hold plants that I know will be much happier indoors: spider plants, hoya, mint, aloe vera, assorted succulents. And in some cases, as with the mint, this was actually a life saving move. Some, like the cyclamen and hedenbergia I left outside, but under an overhang. The oribe gorge succulent, seen above, will be repotted and kept indoors all winter, to give it a head start, and to hopefully see more growth, which I do believe has been hampered by the recovery time it has needed after being exposed to frosts and some freezes, and of course drenching rains.
So that is all for now, I am running to the window to have a look at the teenagers who are still up, while my three little ones are fast asleep. I do hope that the snow will keep until the morning, as that is truly a dream awakening. And since Fridays are in any case half days at school, it's actually a perfect day for snow.
