I liked the design in the center of the daisy in my Bloom Ring piece.  The disc florets that aren’t yet blooming produce a nice abstract pattern all by themselves.  I made the aesthetic decision to place the flower so that the left one third line, using the rule of thirds, crossed it directly at the midpoint.  I also found it interesting that the disc florets that have bloomed form a ring (perhaps because they started from the outside and are working their way toward the very center).  I came across this flower in one of the smaller, side gardens at the Aiken County Historical Museum.  The high level of detail allows individual pieces of pollen to be seen.
