[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The creeping cherry (Cerasus prostrata) grows in the Mediterranean high mountains. In Israel it grows only in the heights of Mt Hermon, sbove 1800m. where trees cannot survive. It blooms in May-June. The cherries are edible but not the best ones. Here you can see the creeping habit of this plant, almost mat-forming. Look for my previous posts of this species.
