Did you ever hear the story about two brothers who were invited to a ball? One of them was careless about his looks, and arrived unshaven and sunburned; the other appeared in a starched white shirt with yellow buttons. We hear this tale every time we take a nature walk with guides who pride themselves on their knowledge of flowers, and want us to remember which rockrose on the path is called “hairy” (lotem sa’ir) and which rockrose is white with a yellow center (lotem marvani).

Although we didn’t see a single white rockrose on the enchanting hike we took last week up in the Jerusalem hills, we did encounter plenty of the hairy species, along with masses of other flowers.
