I had a great day, working out in the yard, cutting back bushes to let the light in to the daisies, roses and peonies. Last week I discovered that within the structure of a forsythia our peonies had sent blooms up into the branches. This looks like it may be the best year yet for the peonies so I hope cutting back the shrubs won't inhibit them next year!
I experimented with negative painting and it was looking fairly good, then I added that heavy ink border---what was I thinking?!! Then I went into the painting with ink to try to tie it all together and I think it suffered some...oh, well, our flowers are just beginning so I'l have more opportunities.
