It looks good nice shine, but for me the sky looks bit polluted green. Maybe a natural blue sky would be better.

I tried a natural blue, but thought the contrast to the birds and the yellow was too much.
thank you for your feedback, I will try out a gradient green-blue.

A Spring Flower.

Also, I realize that this really isn't an issue, but in certain parts of the world (Southern Hemisphere) it is actually heading in to Fall.

Aslan,

Nice work! I like the hand drawn feel of the birds. And you're getting an interesting effect with the light, too.

I think maybe the typeface you've chosen is out of place, a bit small and the black is very heavy against the illustration.

Otherwise, a good start to the contest!
Honey, I got rhythm that I haven't used yet.

I (personally) liked the 2nd better.
Am a bit undecided bout the text (my spring) if it might look better in front (not behind the bees & butterflies?).
