I’ve been nurturing several Jerusalem Bethlehem Star flowers to emerge in spite of our cold, cold winter.Each day their roots reach further into the sea glass bottom and their green moves upward toward the edge of the container. Each day, they bring me a bit closer to warmer weather – which I miss in the middle of the winter. Each day they remind me of the beauty that grows wild in Israel.
David gave me these bulbs as a gift, when Shara came to visit. I loved being in their tel aviv garden last October. I love glass gardens where I can see the roots naturally gravitating toward moisture and the green reaching for light.
