Well, you and flowers are certainly a match. Another wonderful composition, with the flower reaching into the frame, with that gorgeous backdrop of green and pink bokeh. Love the tiny delicate spots of yellow, contrasting in such a lovely way with the deep pink of the petals.

I wanted to start with word "Gorgeous" but since the comment above me starts with it I'll choose another onw.

Amazing fresh colours which reminds much more spring than the end of summer. Great details, composition and use of texture (I guess the bokeh comes from a texture as the flower doesn't look like after rain or morning dew but I might be wrong).
