My Dad used to call me Petunia as a joke when I was young. It was after a goose from a memory game. Not that that matters here. ;) Beautiful shot with lovely details and excellent bokeh, perfectly balanced.

Nice shallow depth of field, which, again, draws ones attention to the flower. The background colors draw the photo all together.
