February is finally here and with it has come the blossoming of anemones, which of course means that the 12th annual Darom Adom Festival – which takes its name after the red (adom) color of the protected flowers – is in full swing.

This year, the festival is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Negev’s first water pipeline. The traditional JNF-KKL march in Bitronot Ruhama in memory of singer Shoshana Damari will take place, along with the agricultural fair, bike race and beloved anemone run. On Thursday evenings during the festival there will be live musical performances, including appearances by Shlomi Shaban, Shlomo Gronich, Ehud Banai, Evyatar Banai, Rami Kleinstein, Keren Peles, Yizhar Ashdot and Amir Dadon.
