|Not too late|
I decided on a vertical composition and then began blocking in the white areas for the flowers with a very light gray. That way I would not be putting white flowers over the dark background -making a muddy mess. It was then a question of filling in the background in between the white areas. This was a great time to paint because the colors were not all green. I had fun with the white flowers, cool in the shadows and warm in the light.

Now we have only to wait for the fruit to appear and ripen - and fight with the thieving crows.
