We spent Saturday in Jerash visiting with friends, and in the late afternoon met the bus which was bringing Tayta back from her youth retreat. It was another beautiful day so Dear Husband took a couple side-roads on our way back to Mafraq. Carpe Diem in the modus operandi in Jordan when it comes to enjoying the spring landscapes.

And a little bonus: my first sighting of Orchis sancta. I did have to untangle it from the Sarcopoterium spinosum which it was growing in the midst of.
