Would YOU Sit on this Couch?

A very odd couch
Awhile ago, while shopping for jeans for for my husband, I came across this very strange couch. The shop does indeed sell jeans, so I guess that the couch fits in with the theme of the place...but still, it is quite odd, is it not?

You cannot see it very clearly in the photo but the 'buttocks' parts of the couch is padded, making it stick out a bit. Sitting on this couch would bring you in close contact with a padded behind! I am really very doubtful that any customer will actually sit on this couch. As you can see, it seems as if the couch is being used more as storage place for folded jeans.

The entire time that I was in the shop, nobody sat on the couch. As a matter of fact, I think I was the only person that even approached the couch. And I only did that so that I could take a photo of it. I needed some proof to show youthat Israel can be quite the strange place sometimes!

What do you say: Would you sit on this funny couch?

Wild mustard as in wild mustard plants! :) I am talking about  Sinapsis Arvensis , a tiny yellow flower that grows in masses in fields, along road sides and abandoned building sites. Up close the wild mustard flower does not look like much - a bit on the puny side actually. But just come across a field filled with mustard flowers and you will be enchanted - just as I am every spring.

When the almond trees flower

    The almond blossoms have a special place in the hearts of Israelis We are right at the entrance of spring now in Israel. Luckily we had a lot of rain this winter and everywhere is clean and green. We are already enjoying the spring flowers but one cannot talk (okay write..☺) about spring flowers without mentioning almond blossoms. These trees always bloom the first in Israel and is a wonderful reminder that the winter is about to come to an end. One has to really pay attention to see the almond blossoms though. They blossom only for a short time. One blink and they are gone until next year.                               The almond blossoms always bloom the first Even as I am writing this post, I know that the glorious white/pink flowers have already disappeared and the almond trees are already covered in fresh new leaves. Soon the small baby almonds will grow into the nuts that I love to snack on. The almond tree, just like other indigenous plants and trees of Israel, are often men

The Judas Tree of Israel

A Purple Judas tree A month or so after the almond blossoms are gone, the beautiful flowers of the Judas tree show up in loud purple glory in Israel.
