painting background

The background in the photo is a pond with a reflective surface. Two questions;
1- Would you paint the entire dark background so  it would a appear to have a smooth surface? Then paint the flowers on top of the background 
2- Would you paint the background around the flowers?

I have tried to paint around the flowers but then the surface does not appear uniform where the flower starts and the background meet.

Thanks a bunch
