after having spent the better part of two days exploring old jaffa in the south end of tel aviv, it was getting time to start exploring… we had made plans to visit with my aunt and cousin and their families in the north of israel at kibbutz hanita. we had visited the kibbutz during our prior visit a couple of decades ago. i remember being struck by the weird and wonderful flowers around my aunt’s house. alas, this time, no such luck… during my first morning stroll in the kibbutz, i did come across a few hibiscus – this one was the standout!
