Loosely defined, bokeh is the quality and "feel" of the out-of-focus foreground or background elements of a photo. It isn't very interesting by itself, but take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background.

Nice use of foward and back depth. Maybe isolate the brown in the top right to really bring the photo togehter? And perhaps a bit too sharp. I like the overall photo though.

Nice colors, but point of focus is a bit centered.

It's good to see some foreground and background bokeh in the same photo - although here I think it overpowers the actual subject and its just a photo of bokeh, rather than a photo WITH bokeh

And a nice one at that. Great colors, nice sharp focus in the center and the background is pleasnt. Maybe a slightly higher crop up front maybe just below the row of 4 flowers. The background seems strong enough that the front ones take away from the image slightly. Nice work though.

Like the color and the idea behind this image. Having the centered flower in sharpest focus is a good idea.

Soft focused foregrounds generally are not as pleasing as soft focused backgrounds. They tend to be more distracting. In your case the 'quality' of the bokeh is better in the foreground than the background. However, that being said, I'd still consider cropping about 20% off the bottom even though the background bokeh is on the harsh side.
