Israeli tour guide, Shmuel Browns- Great site for those interested in the Bible and flowers.

Sample of an informative tidbit from Shmuel's blog.

"One of the things about touring Israel is that you get to see a lot in a small amount of space. Because Israel is located on the land bridge between Europe, Asia and Africa and extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River in the Great African Rift Valley and from the Red Sea to mountains in the north it has a diversity of climates and habitats. These unique conditions are the main cause for the rich diversity of Israeli flora; more than 2500 species (compared to 1500 in the British Isles for example which is 10 times the size)."

Just north of Binyamina, about 120 km northwest of Jerusalem, is the Ramat Hanadiv garden and nature park. The 1,100 acre park is a memorial to Baron Edmund de Rothschild, an early supporter of the Zionist movement. Ramat Hanadiv presents biblical plants in archaeological and historical contexts on numerous trails. Archaeological excavations in the nature park have exposed biblical era sites, which are now mingled with the biblical plants in the landscape.
