This scene has a nice light and a nice feeling for setting. The challenge is that the flowers essentially go right through the center of the photo. Centered subjects rarely make for the most engaging compositions for viewers. In this case, it makes it look like you aren't sure what you really want to show about the flowers. Are you showing them in a woods? Then emphasize the woods by putting the flowers lower in the frame. Are you showing them in a rocky location? Then emphasize that by putting the flowers higher in the frame. Now they are in an in between area that tells the reader that there is no strong relationship to think about. Research actually shows that people spend less time with a centered image than one that has the subject out of the center, largely because they don't look around the image much when the subject is centered.
