Dragonflies Spring into Spring

We spend a long time planning our window displays. After all they are a feature of Rundle Mall and iconic Adelaide Arcade. No pressure on our in house artist at all!

After the long winter months, and the bitter cold we couldn't wait for spring. The days are getting longer and the air is fresh with the beautiful blossoms.

We start to plan catch ups in the back yard with family and friends. Pool days, Barbecues and fun in the sun.

With the warmer months you can expect some visitors - we love Dragonflies. Such amazing insects, with thee long bodies and translucent wings. They really are quite amazing to watch….

Here are some fun facts we found about dragonflies….

  • The flight of the dragonfly is so special that it has inspired engineers who dream of making robots that fly like dragonflies.
  •  Dragonflies are expert fliers. They can fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter and even mate mid-air. If they can’t fly, they’ll starve because they only eat prey they catch while flying.
  • There are more than 5,000 known species of dragonflies, all of which (along with damselflies) belong to the order Odonata, which means “toothed one” in Greek and refers to the dragonfly’s serrated teeth.

We would love to see you buzz into either of our Adelaide Arcade or Rundle Mall boutiques to see our glowing dragonflies.
