As I've stated elsewhere on this blog, I'm not a big fan of Symmetry. Oh sure, it has its place and I have witnessed some stunning landscapes done with pleasing symmetry.
It's just not for me.
In these photos, you can see how I've mixed silver-grey foliage with blues and purple flowers, set against complementary colors from the opposite side of the color wheel to create an impact. I've added dark foliage, variegated foliage and lacy trailing foliage all to add variety.
Though I am a beginner, I hope you can see evidence of some dark foliage and deep jewel tone flowers to offset the lighter pastels of small flowers.
Additionally, you may insert comments throughout the blog in the spaces provided for "comments". There is also a "Question and Answere" portion to this blog, located at the bottom of the blog. This is open to all. Accordingly, if I cannot answer your question, perhaps another reader will be able to do so.
