Photography | Shooting in Manual

This year I have made a conscious effort to always shoot in manual mode when I’m at home and able to take my time with a shot. Aperture adjustment is starting to make sense to me, so I may spend the next 6 months trying to learn a new technique (that is how long I have been fiddling around learning how to take the shot below; slow learner I know).
I am proud of this picture! Completely unedited btw. Leftover flowers from my baby shower, still looking good over a week later.

Have you explored the other side of the dial on your DSLR? Any tips for me?

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
