The best thing about a garden is when you use it.

It’s now warm enough to start playing with water in the afternoons – soon it will be too hot!  I have to admit, I probably had even more fun than the children did.

Noor has to have the same photo matching that of Yousef’s in national dress. This is her at 8 months.

Merry Christmas everyone.
