Tweaking a Painting

I have long loved and wanted to paint this house on Hwy 174 on Edisto Island.

 #1  I thought I had finished this yesterday, but I asked friend and Dallas artist Carol Simmons to critique it. 

 #2  She suggested darkening the shadow under the eaves on the right so I did that and liked it but I kept staring at it. 

#3  Then I intensified the reds in the flowers,  and added dark smudges to the base of the chimney.

#4 Finally I softened the base of the woods on the left.  I think I am done with it.  What do you think?
