Thank you for the pdf link Joumana, is this a regular magazine over there?

She looks great in the photos, you can really spot her in a crowd can't you - she just stands out from everyone, she really glows.

Her mother must be very proud of her daughter and what she is trying to achieve for her country and the image she projects to the world.

Very nice photos, mims111. I really appreciate it when other members keep us up to speed with what Queen Rania (and King Abdullah) are doing--as I don't have access to all these sources. So it's great to be able to come here and have a look and see them! Thanks!!!!

I thought this was a neat article on a book produced by Beloit College in Wisconsin:

Flowers for a Queen
By Lytton John Musselman’65
“I love the title,” exclaimed Her Majesty Rania al Abdullah, Queen of Jordan, in response to the choice of a title for a book she commissioned me to write. Articulate and charming, she chatted with me in the hallway of the Jordan River Foundation. I was flattered that she appreciated my efforts to describe the plants of her domain, and I valued the opportunity to work for her on plants I love.
Queen Rania intended the book, Jordan in Bloom: Wildflowers of the Holy Land, to draw attention to the diverse flora of Jordan and the need for its conservation.
She commissioned Russian artist Dasha Fomicheva to prepare a set of watercolors of native Jordanian plants for the publication. Dasha spent her childhood years in Jordan and has a passion for wildflowers. Working with the artist, I selected 53 different plants for the book. A very small country, Jordan would fit into the commonwealth of Virginia with 10,000 square miles to spare, yet its location at the axis of three continents ensures a flora richer than Virginia’s. Despite aridity (about 80 percent of the country is desert), there are more than 2,500 plant species in Jordan. The ecological diversity is extraordinary.

One of my favorites is Anemone coronaria, perhaps the plant Jesus referred to when he said, “Consider the lilies of the field ....” Plants featured in the writings of the great Arab physician-botanist Ibn Sina, Arab poets, and Lawrence of Arabia are also included. With such a feast of plants available, it was difficult to limit the menu.

At present, there are no plans to sell Jordan in Bloom outside of Jordan. Presentation copies will be used by the Royal Court for official visitors. The remaining copies will be sold to aid Queen Rania’s charity, which helps abused children. (She also sponsors several programs for women, among them village industries and ecotourism.) I am thankful to have participated in the production of such a spectacular volume on plants of the Middle East and to draw attention to Jordan in bloom.

Thanks for the pictures, Humera. Jordan and Pakistan are working towards closer links on a variety of different issues, not just the usual areas like trade.

It's a shame the book won't be available outside of Jordan, I imagine if it was available it would probably sell qutie well.

Why it's not available outside Jordan?

I think it's even not available in Jordan for public,it's only for royal court and their guests,it's a shame that the results of all that efforts of making such as book of ecology are not shared by normal people who have interest in that subject.

I just love Queen Rania! She is so elegant when she is dressed up, yet so beautifully tough when not. Hope that makes sense
