My parents got me the gift of nature for my birthday. My mom cleaned out the pots in the patio (the carnage of dead plants, neglected during our recent trips) and they shopped for new plants to go in the pots.
They looked so pretty, and the patio looked so inviting that I took the opportunity to do some floral studies from them.
In terms of technique, I kept it loose and used a spray bottle, for the very first time, to diffuse edges. I love the effect!
