The overwhelming need for symmetry

Back in the '80s when my children were kids, and even I was a young slip-ofa-thing, we were devoted to "Mastermind"- amongst others. It took perhaps two turns from me for those sweet poppets to twig that my poor old brain craved balance.

This front entry in Alexander Street is most pleasing to my eye. However, that Murraya hedge (or is it English Box?) is a smidge out of kilter.

Julie’s back! I was worried.

Too funny. I love assymetry so long as it is organised and not just mayhem. Even my engagement ring is assymetrical with two small stones to the left of the larger central stone.

So good to see you back, Julie. Your posts and images are always interesting and most thought-provoking. I also see the hedges is out of kilter. Greetings, Jo (East Africa)
