Beautiful colors on that flower, and I like your choice of composition. You seemed to capture this lovely flower at the peak of its beauty. There's no rusty petals, and all the other bits look fresh and new. Even the bokeh grass looks bright and healthy.

Overall, I would say it's a little dark and a little blurry. Shutter speed shows 13 in your notes. Is that 13 seconds? Surely that can't be right? I have a big piece of stiff, white packaging foam that I take out onto my patio sometimes to bounce light on my subjects. That helps with keeping the shutter speed up. Another cause of the softness might be the f/22. It might just be too far out of the lens' sweet spot, which is typically more in the middle of its range.
