I found some primrose plants along the driveway of my house and picked
a few to put into a small vase in order to paint a still life. The next day I
discovered that the petals had fallen off of one of the blossoms. I was
wondering if they just naturally fell off or if they had been knocked off
somehow.  If you look in the reflection in the vase you might discover
a little mouse looking back. ....Maybe he is responsible.
