Thank you Michele for the compliments. It was a lot of work and every time I did it, the completion was a bit different. This first version was a patch placed over an intruding leaf in the lower right. Not a very good patch, however. I'll be doing it again. Watch for #2 and #3.

Thank you, also, Joy. #9771498

You did, Michele. I have it in the other gallery. Just never got around to taking it down here. (LOL)
Thank you, regardless!
