By now you probably know I'm not a person to chase after every new gadget, but I do feel grateful for my cell phone camera - because, though I often mean to take my husband's excellent (much bigger, better, and more professional) camera along when we take our walks on especially beautiful days, I don't often actually get around to it - meanwhile, I always have my cell phone on hand, and can still snap some adequate shots as we walk along rambling paths and see flowers unfurling after a good winter's rain.
Speaking of winter... I do so wish it could always be this way - beautiful, bright sunny days, interspersed by occasional (mainly nocturnal) showers that fill up underground reservoirs, soak the thirsty ground and produce luscious vegetation to the delight of the birds and animals in our vicinity. Yes, we do need rain. Just give us warm rain, please. Have I mentioned that I'm a summer person, and that it's very lucky I get to live in Israel?
