Israel's chamomile blooms amid purple wood mallow flowers in this beautiful spring photo taken in the Negev Highlands. In April, the temperatures are still mild enough for an afternoon stroll.

"The springtime is the best time to visit, when the yellow desert blooms," photographer Yael Ilan told From the Grapevine. "The Negev desert is at its best right now, flourishing and beautiful."
