Spring seems to have come for real this time. To soak in the sun and admire the outdoors, we strolled in Bloomfield gardens, that overlooks the city wall of old Jerusalem.

I was struck by the amount of thyme that is growing here, along side the cacti. Both plants obviously thrive in this climate.
It is a lovely park that has this quirky water fountain: lions spitting water, doves, a couple of mice at some of the feet of the lions and a tree-like centre piece perhaps inspired by the curly mains of the lions. Also pomegranates are a usual addition to such monuments, which can be spotted at the foot of the fountain. Perhaps I can find some inspiration here for fabric design.
|Nice touch to add the tails intertwining.|
Have a nice day!
