Not really ... I just thought it would be good to end the month on the same note as I started. Actually, I was experimenting (honing my Photoshop skills -- OK, playing) and ended up with this little number. It was fun (oops, educational), and it turned out better than I'd expected. The background color, which I'd never have imagined myself, came about because I somehow accidentally clicked the eyedropper on part of the blossom and reset the foreground tool to that green whatever color. Sometimes I think this machine (or my fingers) have a mind of their own.

Original (with background darkened)
