Shavuot is very nearly here, and as usual, it is marked by the blossom of the pomegranate tree (as seen in the picture), which should bear its fruit close to Rosh Ha-Shana.
As some of you perhaps remember, Shavuot also happens to be my husband's birthday. His birthday cake is already tucked in the freezer, waiting for the grand occassion - this year, I made chocolate cake with ice cream layers, and you can be sure it will be thoroughly enjoyed.
I'm not sure I'll be able to squeeze in another post before Shavuot, so I'm taking this opportunity to with a very happy holiday to all my Jewish readers. I hope to be back before long, as I have a lot to talk about, and the only thing limiting me is time.
