Symmetry at the center makes things easier. The bugloss (aka brunnera) leaves have great texture and contrast. They also don’t lie flat, and move the minute I put the Chocolate Queen Anne’s Lace on top of them. I cut off the base of the leaf, which helped some, but like everything, they have their own way of being. Left with asymmetry, and the rest of the arrangement tries to adapt. So blur your eyes, and enjoy it as is. For me it’s another chance to practice imperfection.
