Once I tell you about it it’s not going to be so secret anymore but I cannot keep the enchanting orchard to myself, its existence revealed to me today.
Corn, cantaloupe, grapes and tomatoes are only a few of the crops that grow in the magical orchard. I was dazzled by the investment some locals put into what would otherwise be a dirt garden.
And it’s only a few minutes away from my home. Up a hill I never bothered to climb. I’ve lived here, in Jerusalem, for almost seven years now. Perhaps I’ve taken this city’s magic for granted. Perhaps I forgot that this age old city has a plethora of secrets waiting to be divulged. Trees and rocks may even be willing to spill them if only they’ll be listened to.
