it is really lovely.. fine chice of colours and light.
may I make a suggestion though..
the vase leans to the left, so does the mint, as the heavier leaves are on the left, the frame goes up on the left top and the right side of the frame also leans left.
This means I sorta want to balance the whole thing. You could either turn it a bit or flip the frame to counterbalance it a bit. I know, I'm a pain. But I have spent a lot of time in my life to get all sorts of things in balance (like at least one air suspension every week) so I can't help it.

I'm trying hard to see what Annette sees here!
I'd call that fine tuning in the extreme!
The frame comes in that shape and may not be symmetrical
but I kinda like it.

Just read the comments above. Bridges and new buildings should not lean to one side, horizons often need to level and straight but vases!!!!!!!.
In my experience any attempt to make flowers or plants symmetrical always looks contrived unless you making bridal posies and even then.....
Your composition is spot on and colours lovely. The framing is down to personal taste, but if you wanted my view, is not quite big enough.
