Exhibition installations can be a bit crazy and the craziness can spill out of the gallery – in this case, into the fridge.

Take a walk down a tree-lined avenue.  Ok, the only tree-lined avenue in town. Here’s another image form a postcard, this from the small hamlet of Yessod-Hamaala near what is today the Tel Aviv megalopolis.  The trees offered a welcome escape from the sweltering afternoon heat.  So did siesta.

Who wares white to visit the fields? Oh, right.  The dude in the straw hat.
When Zionist settlers arrived in the land of Israel from Europe, they brought—unsurprisingly—their customs and habits, and shaped them to fit the climate.  For example, you might see the person waring a white blazer with a straw hat—light material meant to keep him cool, and in style!

How do you like your sheep?  I hope walking through town is ok!  This postcard is from what is today one of the furthest northern and windiest towns in Israel.  Like many other Zionist settlements, it started as an agricultural community, and the trees whose birthdays we just celebrated, were planted to make the area more comfortable and habitable… and to give fruit.  You might note the absence of much in the way of trees outside of town.

Continuing with our tree-birthday fortnight, imagine yourself sauntering down this date grove in Rishon Le-Zion, one of the earliest Zionist agricultural settlements in the land of Israel.  If you’re lucky, the warm wispy wind might carry the sweet smell of ripening dates.  Yum!

Ah, moonshine in Jericho shimmering off the trees.  Not THAT moonshine you know!
Today we know Jericho as a bustling Palestinian metropolis near the banks of the Dead Sea. But the name also rings out as uber-historical, appearing in the bible and in countless other stories.  But this region also possesses a mystical quality that seems to radiate intensely at night.  This image of a moonlit building in Jericho from 1918 hints at that quality.  The building looks at once solid and familiar but also otherworldly. Indeed, the trees almost appear as apparitions emanating toward heaven.

So, Tu B’Shvat, the birthday for the trees (Lorax, eat your heart out!) was just last week.  Hopefully you’re over that blast of amaretto.  But, just in case you need a slight reminder, check out this century+ old postcard of an almond grove.
