Traveling Around Jordan: Um Qays

A few weeks ago we visited one of my favorite places in Jordan. Um Qays is the site of old Roman ruins, and in the spring time it is filled with wild flowers. From the site you can see the Sea of Galilee, as well as Syria and Israel.

We always have a delicious lunch overlooking the view.

My visits to Um Qays inspired the Spring Fields Bundle.

What pretty pictures - thanks for sharing! =) I especially love that window picture, the poppy picture, Jordan pretending he's a column (hee-hee) & the one of you sitting on a rocky ledge... Could you tell me what the last flower is? I've never seen that flower before & it's exquisite...
