    arrangement #1 or #2?

    The three stems on the right side are sewn down. The second and third stem from the left will both have buds on them. I'm kind of leaning towards the second arrangement. It'll get leaves today.

    I vote for the second one. Looks more like what you'd see, in nature.

    Hmmmmmm. I love your poppies and the background. I like the placement more on the second one but I think I'd like it better if the left one was moved down just a little so it wasn't touching the other one. I see how you would not want the buds too close but I would move the bud stem to the other side of the left poppy stem? It will look beautiful no matter what you decide.

    How's this for wishy-washy... I LOVE them both. I think either arrangement would be great. They both look very natural to me.

    Once the 2 buds are on... the first placement appeals to me.

    I like the second arrangement. In the first one the flowers look too random and disconnected. In the second one they look like an arrangement.

    I like the 1st one the best as I prefer the spaces between the blooms.

    I agree with most everyone else, I like the second one better. Too much space between the flowers in the first one. IMHO

    Either one will work just fine when you get the leaves and buds together. It will put the arrangement together and it will work. It will make it an arrangement.

    I would make the composition a bit more complicated by making the arrangement have five poppies and lots of buds.

    I love poppies! your choice will be wonderful either way. No help from me! The more the merrier.

    I like the first one. I like a little breathing room between my flowers.
