Lackadaisical - something about missing flowers?

My mom loves the lighthouses, so I found this pattern at cross stitcher's club and decided to stitch it for her. It turned out fairly well. It took me about 10 hours all told. Stitched on 14 count Aida. (Forgive the craptastic photos, taken with my phone.)

Thanks, I certainly hope she likes it. It's the first large-ish piece I've done in cross-stitch.
