Day 311: Saturday, Rain and Paddle Plants

Friday night brought rain, lots of it… and the most amazing thunder storm in years. In fact the rain hasn’t stopped yet (and it’s Monday) so Saturday was wet, cold and miserable… I moped around checking my website every 20 minutes, expecting it to change and suddenly reappear (this time! no, this time then) and it didn’t.

During the afternoon I fiddled with my Paddle Plant picture, darkening some of the hedge, darkening the gravel, adding shadows across the gravel. I think it’s improved but I’m afraid I still don’t like it, it’s just too bitty. I love the colours of the leaves but I didn’t really get to grips with painting the hedge and gravel… Actually, maybe if I punch the contrast up in the leaves at the front you won’t notice the hedge so much…
