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?

  1. A strange couch indeed! It would have been a very cool idea had they used cleaner jeans.

    1. So right! Maybe they think dirty jeans are "cooler"!

The wild mustard flowers of Israel

The wild mustard is growing yellow and everywhere in Israel at the moment. But not the kind of mustard that you eat with ketchup on your hotdog!

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.

Khubeza - Israel's wild ‘spinach'

  During the winter months in Israel, as soon we had a bit of rain, the fields are covered in  green khubeza plants. The word fields are actually not 100% correct. Khubeza will grow anywhere. Empty lots, forgotten plant containers, refuse heaps or in any patch of upturned earth. They grow close to the earth and turn the dry Israeli landscape into an unexpected emerald green. Their willingness to grow to easily and luxuriously make them seem nearly weed-like. Khubeza is however the opposite of a weed. It is one of the most well-known edible plants here in Israel. Every self-respecting forager definitely has khubeza on their top-ten list. Sounds like bread (in Arabic) Is it mostly known by its Arabic name here in Israel. Khubeza comes from the word "hubz"  which means bread in Arabic. Apparently the plant has edible fruit that looks like a small loaf of bread.  Just like young children are taught that you can suck the sap from honeysuckle flowers and look for pine nuts under p
