You got a love it. There are the trees, bushes and flowers that my husband planted and takes care of all year long, for 25 years (In Karmiel since 1987, in this house and garden since 1989).
The earth that was brought to the garden was so fertile that anything grows. You eat an olive, or a date, or an apple and throw the leftover on the ground, next thing you know you have a little tree that is growing.
Seeds arrive with the wind and palnt themselves. There is a tree that planted itself, and since then every few months you find a new tree, a couple of meters from some other tree, probably a shoot from the underground roots of the original one. It has a narrow trunk, and grows tall and green.

How many different kinds of birds are there, in a home-garden, in northern edge of the Lower Galilee, Northern Israel?
Some Sylvia melanocephala (סבכי שחור-ראש ) are nesting in our garden. I was fortunate enough to catch them on camera during a drizzle., some oictires and videos of parents feeding their youngster.
There are Bulbuls that love eating our pomegranate fruits… when they are not chattering… (see video on link)
There are wild pigeons, I got awesome videos of one learning how to fly .
The sunbirds are returning from the southern part of the country, and enjoying, again, the sugar-water I put for them each day.
Obviously, we have some ants x
… who love sugar- water!
A fantastically singing black bird, not sure what it’s called’ wakes me up every morning, and gives us concerts in late afternoon.
There are also other creatures: Chameleons , spiders, flies, snails…
