This is the aloe vera that is producing the flower. You can see the long shoot going up from the right side, rising right into the air. It is really amazing. You can also see the white stone of the wall next to it. By law, every building in Jerusalem must be built from a beautiful white stone known as "Jerusalem Stone". Jerusalem is therefore a city of white houses and buildings, accented both by red tile roofs like so many other Mediterranean countries use and by the green of gardens and trees everywhere. A truly unique and lovely place.
