Flowers at the Dig

My regular readers know that I like to take pictures of flowers. Tonight I thought that I would share some of the flowers that were growing on the tel at Lachish.

I do not know the names of any of these flowers and do not have time to research them tonight. They are all wildflowers as the only landscaping done at the tel is done by archaeologists cleaning up their squares at the beginning of the season.

Yellow Flowers, Lachish, Israel, Archaeological DigThis is an interesting picture as it shows both new blooms and also older dried out blooms. I am sure that at the end of the rainy season there would have been a lot more color, but in the middle of the dry season it was not too colorful.
