I took this picture on my way to work this week. The Jacarandas are blooming and it's a very colorful time of year. Israel doesn't really have spring. The weather gets warmer and then colder and then warmer again from mid-March until the beginning of June each time the warmer spells get longer and the cooler ones shorter until it's just hot, uncomfortably hot or unbearably hot and then it's winter again for a short time. Spring is marked by colors and these lovely trees are some of the happy colors of Rehovot at this time of year.
