This is what you could be seeing if you took a (very quick) tour of a garden in a Lebanese mountain village this time of year. The photos were taken at sunset, people were hunting nearby (even though they are supposed to be at least 500 meters away), so this is just a sample of findings.
Pomegranates, lots of them. These are the sour ones that can be used for pomegranate molasses.
Hundreds of bay leaves, on a tree.
Hundreds of clusters of sumac (wild) ready to be harvested.
Zaatar ready to be harvested.
A magnificent lemongrass plant
The linden tree to make great calming tea at night.
