I saw a small stand of coneflowers surrounded by orange daylilies and pulled over the car to get some shots. I thought that if I could blur the background properly I could make the daylilies look like a fire surrounding the pink.

I'd say you succeded in what you were trying to do Melissa. Excellent use of DoF on this image. Beautiful complimentary colors between the foreground and blurred background.
