It is easier to comment on single images :-)

In order...

1 Dark green is too dark. Lighten shadows?
2 Lovely red abstract.
3 Subject too centered. Maybe a little cropping would help.
4 Overexposed.
5 Distracting bright blob. Dead buds.

The first one is very nice. I like the square frame. It works great and points to the subject. I donít think itís too dark, I would go even further.
I love the color of the second, but I donít quite get the red bulb...
For the third, I would say a close up would have helped, and a little less contrast.
On the opposite, the next seems to need more contrast, also some cropping or a close up.
As for the last, itís always better to get rid of distractions in the frame, such as the bright spot in the background. But the bokeh is there, the exposure is fine too. The horizontal frame works.
At general I can spot the very same issue I have: deciding what is the right distance from the subject. Tree-bush-branch-flower-sticks-spikes... all plants, all beautiful, different scales and points of interest.

And I would suggest you either choose a different signature or even better, remove it.
