Aiming for Symmetry
I have flower beds on either end of the patio outside our SJC living room. They are for the most part very different with different plants and color schemes, however I have been trying to add a bit of symmetry at the very edges that face each other and wrap around the large pots on the patio which are mirror images. On the right side is a healthy and robust perennial, Blue Marguerite (felicia amelloides). It is quite pretty and I had put one in last year at the same time in the opposite bed that didn't make it due to the fact that it is in the direct path that the dogs take when they come bounding out of the house into the yard. I am trying again this year with this little one, after creating a bit of an obstacle for the dogs, however in review, maybe I should put in a much bigger one or maybe a couple more because it looks like it is going to be a while before it resembles the one on the other side and it is looking a little sad.
