I was playing about in the garden with my camera last week, sweating buckets as I did so!) and happened to be taking photos of my Frangipani tree, which is in full, fragrant flower and looking beautiful...

...when I saw out of the corner of my eye, a very bright insect flying around the foilage below... it was a vibrant red dragonfly.  I was mesmerised...

Isn't he beautiful?  I swear he was watching me... just look at his face!

A little bit of Britain

We celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, just a little bit, this week...

A 'street party' in class for the little chap, a taste of home in the shape of a trifle, and, of course, a few Union flags about!

The Rivington Grill at the Madinat Jumeriah was the venue for a Brits Brunch, though, and the Ladies who Lunch were in good form!

Luvly Jubly!
