שבת בבוקר יום יפה! גם בגשם! #shutterclutter #spring #israel

There is a popular Israeli song that gets heard mostly on Saturday (Shabbat) morning radio that goes “Saturday morning, a beautiful day…” and that is what we had this morning even in the first pouring and then drizzling rain at the Ramat Hanadiv gardens near Zichron Yakov. These are beautiful, well-tended gardens which are open to the public, free of charge, with paths winding through various plantings and flowerbeds.  We were nearly on our own with only a few other adventurous walkers about.
