    magnifique Yan! les couleurs sont très intenses et j’aime ces petits ronds rouges au bout de chaque pointes :)

  • Merci beaucoup Manon pour le compliment. C’est une journée, où je vais rester à la maison vu la mauvaise température et je m’amuse à faire de la photo avec ce qu’il y a autour de moi :)
