Sunshine came softly

Enjoying the morning sunshine much as is this delicate orchid in the window of  my in-laws' house on l'ile d'Orleans in Quebec. Am also getting acquainted with what my new tablet can do.



Special effects thanks to a combination of Instagram and Pixlr.

    1. Probably poisonous as well, or at least hallucinatory, so be careful to not over indulge.
