Les demoiselles

Not de Rochefort, but in the Brenne. I saw these two on a reed or rush of some kind and got a decent picture. I don't know how I missed posting it earlier this week when I wrote about our trip to the Brenne.

Am I blue? Click the picture to turqoiselate.

Busy day today and all this coming week. Walking, watering, wining and dining, and right now getting the house ready for company. Friends from California, a couple and their two now-grown children, arrive on Tuesday for a stay of a few days.

Une demoiselle is a damsel fly. Click the picture to dragonify.

After their visit, I'll have some picture of the local sights and sites to post here. Probably Chenonceau, Montpoupon, and Loches. Then some markets. Maybe Blois. Have a good Sunday.


  1. Nice photos of the damselflies-love their colors. Have fun getting ready for your friends. I think they visited when you first moved and the kids were youngsters then. Time does fly.

  2. Saw "turqoiselate" and for a minute I thought I was on Walt's blog.

  3. Stunning pictures. Reall beautiful.

  4. Lovely damselflies--the metallic turquoise is such a fantastic color. Drove over today to Mezieres-en-Brenne which you posted about recently:- had to go and see the glass. Great!

  5. We have a lot of them around here right now. They not blue though.

  6. Carolyn, LOL. Steal what you can where you can, when it comes to writing, I guess. But be careful.

    Evelyn, the friends who came here with a 1-year-old baby are different friends. They're coming back to see us in July. That baby is now 9 years old.

    Antoinette, glad you went and enjoyed the glass. I know I did.

    Diogenes, :^)

    Starman, the turquoise ones are beautiful. Small though.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
