On Sunday I wrote a post called Holy Land Fauna. Tonight I am following it up with one about Flora in the Holy Land. I have a lot of pictures to choose from for both of these topics, so they may end up as series.
In this post I will be bringing together some pictures that I have shared in previous posts.
I shared this picture of ancient Olive Trees in my post Lest I Forget Gethsemane.
These trees are at one of the sites that claim to be the location of the Garden of Gethsemane.
This oasis is close to the shore of the Dead Sea, which is the lowest point on Earth. We had just visited Masada and were on our way to Qumran when we passed the oasis.
You can see more pictures from the area by visiting my post: Well Below Sea Level
I shared this picture in a post called Finally Home, but took the picture on the day I wrote my post Over, Under and Around Jerusalem. You can click on the link to see a picture of the Pool of Siloam.
The picture was taken in the Old Joppa area. In the background you can see a mosque tower and the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
I used this picture in my post Heading Home Again, which also details why I had to spend an extra day in Tel Aviv before flying home.
I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the flora of the Holy Land. I have more pictures, so you may see a sequel 🙂
