Photo of the Month - May-June 2022: The Carpet Weaver

Updated: Sep 5, 2022

Every year during the spring, there are red carpets of poppies all around Israel. These beautiful carpets may appear in random places: some may occur yearly, while some are new and may be seen only once. This particular carpet grew over a huge area of several fields. Rumor says, that the seeds used for sowing the area were mixed with poppy seeds. Unobserved by the farmers, the poppies then burst in magnificent red, covering the entire area.

However, every carpet must come to an end... either by the flowers wilting, or in this case - by the farmers reaping the fields. Using machinery, the entire area was reaped in no-time, leaving piles of grass mixed with red poppies on the ground.
