Mums, Not Peonies, In Progress

As you can see, the name of the flower has changed.  For some reason I had peonies in my head when these are actually mums.  Can you tell I'm not knowledgeable about flowers although I love being amongst them. 

The photo above is showing todays progress.  I took the photo outside and still the background is showing quite dark even though there is a variety of values, shapes and colors.
