April 27-May 7, 2014

Israel, a country full of wonder and promise, is located in Southwest Asia. Although small in territory, Israel's landscape and climate are varied, and its population does not interfere with a wealth of plants and wildlife, as well as many natural attractions. Our visit in April should be perfect as the weather is very comfortable and bright sunshine is the norm.

Due to its location at a climatic and geographical crossroads, Israel offers a surprising wealth of plant life. Israel boasts a total of approximately 2,380 kinds of flora, including many endemic varieties found only here. The variety of flora is much larger than many far larger countries in fact.

In September 2007 the Cyclamen persicum was elected as the national flower of the State of Israel and the Olive was elected as the national tree and both had their official presentation in the botanical exhibition "We Are One World" held in Beijing.

Reforestation and wetland preservation are national priorities in Israel.

What has not already been said about the holiest city in the world, the eternal city first built thousands of years ago, whose history can be heard in the whispering of the wind along the walls, where every stone tells a wondrous story of a city that has drawn millions of faithful pilgrims for thousands of years. Such is Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, the only city in the world that has 70 names of love and yearning, the city that in old maps appears at the center of the world and is still adored like a young bride.

Israel’s third largest city and one of its prettiest, Haifa has a lot to offer visitors. It has the country’s largest port, a particularly active beach and is the home of the World Center of the Bahai Faith. The Bahai World Center, an expansive and well-designed complex on the slope of the Carmel, is famous for its magnificent gardens. It includes the exquisitely landscaped “Hanging Gardens” which run about a kilometer along the Louis Promenade until Ha-Gefen Street.

The smallish gulf of Jaffa has been the site of a fortified port town for at least 4000 years. Tel Aviv (meaning literally "Hill of Spring") itself was founded in 1909 by a group of distinguished Jewish residents of Jaffa. They envisaged a European-style garden suburb, with wide streets and boulevards. Setting out with a grand vision, the 60 Tel Aviv founders had started out by building the first mid-eastern urban center with running water, no small wonder in that part of the world in 1909.

Be sure to visit http://www.icangarden.com/Pix/Israel-2012-1.cfm  for a bit of what I saw while there in June 2012 as a prelude to putting the tour together. My short visit was just that, short, but I knew in my heart that I wanted to come back again and hopefully share some of what I saw with others who love gardens, history, culture, food and getting to know a bit more about the people of Israel.

I was humbled in so many ways by what I saw and where I was. Israel is a land of wonder and wonderful warm people.

You will never be the same after this visit.

I am working with a great ground handler who lives in Israel and will make sure our time here is perfect and very memorable.
