Saudi Arabia: Flowers in Taif

Taif, Saudi Arabia, is just a short drive from the seaport metropolis of Jeddah.  Taif is located in a mountainous largely agricultural region of the country.  It's nice to see more vegetation here, as the colorful flowers confirm. The city is also well know for its roses and produces world famous rose water.

Rose water! It must smell good there. :)

Someone gave me a bottle of it but I have never used it.

Hi Dina - Just a drop of rose water in a jug of water is delightful. It is also lovely in desserts like pudding or sprinkled lightly on bed sheets.
