Milk and Honey

Recently i've heard a lot about the meaning of Milk and Honey, it was rather interesting so I thought I would share. Plus I just love these photos.

Milk and Honey is a poetic name for the Promised Land originally from the Bible.
Figuratively, a "land of milk and honey" is any place of great abundance.

I though this was so beautiful that I researched about Milk and Honey and found this description of why we would call a place of great abundance, Milk and Honey.

"Spring is the season that recalls the biblical image of a perfect land so fertile its green hills flow with honey dripping from its hives, like liquid gold in the sunlight. A spacious land covered with pink hawthorn, red cyclamen, and white rockrose. There are the flowers of its myriad wild fruits, and the warm valley air smelling of their nectar."

"And gushing — somehow — from the land itself, there are springs of pure milk white as snow, and bright streams of it flowing through the hills, as if the milk of an eternally vibrant earth mother in her fruitful cycle of multiplication. It is, according to the Bible, "the beauty of all lands" — a paradise whose people would lack nothing."

Can you just imagine it?
