Originally this was going to be a garden because I thought a "cluster of flowers" would be pretty, and there was a waterfall in the middle because I've just always wanted to pixel one...

Then I realised I'm pretty bad at using limited colour palettes, especially as low as 16, therefore I could only really handle three different ramps (and most of them are still pretty segregated, it's something I really do want to improve on in the future). I don't think I've ever managed something so big at all before, so it feels like a huge step forward for me. There's a long series of WIPs in the challenge thread, if you want to see the process of getting to this point. 

*photoshop told me it was 16 but PJ's spec tool says 15, so that's why it looks like I haven't utilised the extra colour

I highly appreciate this mostly due to how tedious and difficult it can be to pixel good-looking plant life. :)
