In this instant I am perfectly, completely happy.
Mini Ice Orchid
Rideau Canal, Hog’s Back Falls
Hog’s Back Park
These are the things that stopped me – if only for a moment – to really appreciate that moment, in joy, humour, wonder… Five beautiful things.

A heart of stone might as well be a grave marker
I would rather have my heart broken a hundred more times
Than live blind to wonder, wounded and alone
Within this heart of stone…

A new bloom on one of my miniature ice orchids.
The mini variety was new to me, I hadn’t kept any indoor plants since moving out of my home but for my two Philodendron; grown from slips of my Great Gran’s when I was a teen. I fell in love with these tiny, exotic orchids and thought I’d give them a whirl despite their temperamental reputation.
This is the first flush of bud and bloom since I purchased this one of the four. New home, new hope, new colour and life.
This is my first try at the Weekly Photo Challenge and that’s new for me too 🙂
