Without a tripod, I will use Shutter priority to get some sharpness.
The dof will be shallow, giving some nice formless background, but its necc to at least get some details sharp in the subject.
Overall, this approach seems to work for most floral closeup.

Hope u like the view and comments/suggestions welcomed.

Fine view of the center to go along with the drooping petals.

Works for me Darren.  Sharp where it needs to be and the droopy petals adds that food for thought re your title.
Make your life spectacular!
