As I was driving to Yerushalayim this morning, I was welcomed by the most amazing sight in the valley at the bottom of our mountain. The almond trees are in full bloom and are incredibly beautiful. Alongside them are lots of plum trees, which look very poor, as they haven't yet started to bloom and they're totally bare. There are also olive trees down there in large amounts, and these are the only fruit trees (to my knowledge) that are evergreens. It's an incredible array of the scope of the beauty of Hashem's creation.
