It's coming to that horrible time of the year there Pam. Can you get to Kodaikanal for a break from the sticky heat?

Argybee, Don't know who painted the dragonfly. It was not me! And I haven't seen too many fairies around the garden lately, I think they've all gone up to the hill stations, it's too hot here!

thanks to Nopayahnah, Atul, Yogesh, leuba, Argybee, Harsuame for your kind comments...
@Atul, yes i agree, but i couldn't see what I was taking on the screen as it was in the sun, and I guess I zoomed in too far! Oh well, next time...
