The last of winter

In the picture above, you see the remnants of one of the last, and particularly violent rain storms we've had this winter. Now spring is in full swing, and we enjoy new wonders every day: the unfolding grape leaves, roses that are about to bloom, and bees that are buzzing in the grapefruit blossoms, pollinating and ensuring that the next season will be fruitful.

Thanks to all who have inquired after us, following the recent horrible events in Israel. I'm happy to be able to tell you all that we are doing well, although of course, shaken by the atrocities that are taking place in our home land. I will try to respond to emails as time allows.

Your Australian family is thinking of you and Mr T and the girls.

Isn't spring a wonderful reminder that "hope springs eternal" and new possibilities are always around the corner...

Glad to hear you're all well.

Nehemia Gordon has mentions this on Facebook and Twitter and You Tube that they have found Aviv (spring) in the last few days. Has pictures on this you tube video.

This is relevant to declare the next month the month in which is considered the first month of the year in the bible in terms of the number of the month (Rosh Hashana is another type of new year although it is in the 7th month) as the holiday as Passover must be celebrated in the spring.

I hope your husband has heard of Nehemiah Gordon as he has some very interesting idea's to bring to the table.
