Explore the most beautiful HIDDEN Cactus Garden in Israel….Maagan Michael

You NEED to visit this cacti garden because who doesn’t love cacti? They are so cool. They survive on practically nothing, they live in the desert, they are shaped so strangely, you touch them and then poke or prick you. They are really just some of the coolest plants ever, in my opinion.

Lucky for us, on Kibbutz Maagan Michael (check out this post for more info on what a Kibbutz is) in northern Israel, there is a very beautiful, extensive, and almost hidden cactus garden. It’s an amazing place to visit, to just wander among the cacti, and marvel in their wonder.

Eric Davis (member of Kibbutz Maagan Michael) moved to Israel from South Africa in 1969. He built this beautiful cacti garden himself with over 5,000 cacti and EVERY SINGLE cacit has been planted by him. WOW. Over 5,000 cacti!

Also fun fact! A nickname for an Israel is a “Sabra”-which is a type of cactus. Why? You might ask. Well, the Sabra is a special cactus which produces a delicious sweet fruit. So like the Sabra, which is prickly and hard on the outside but produces a sweet, delicious fruit, so are the Israeli people. At first they may appear rough and tough, but once you can break past the surface, they are sweet on the inside.

All of our outfits are thrifted! My shirt with the cute ruffles we got soooo long ago. Brooke’s lovely dress we bought recently from a trade in second hand shop here in Israel called Dressed by Danielle.

Have you ever been to a Cacti Garden? And did it look as amazing as this one? Would love to hear about your adventures 🙂

Sending love and happiness, Brooke and Danielle, Colorful Sisters
