    Way to go, Dianne. The bits of color in the water reflection and flowers adds reality and warmth. I’m impressed with your outstanding stone work and the water reflection, too. Congratulations!

  • Thankyou so much Frannie! It’s always nice when something turns out pretty similar to the original idea you had in your head :)
