    Well, wow, what a lovely place to break down in!

    In general, they're really lovely photos. Fresh and bright subject matter, although, they all look a bit dark (underexposed?), to me. but, bright skies with white fluffy clouds and a field of daisies - quintessential summer! I'm not quite sure what I think about the square cropping. It's refreshingly different but I'm not sure what purpose it's serving. Also, it is good to have something in the foreground but, in this case, the grass in #1 and #2 is obscuring my view - getting complicated with the lovely, lovely row of trees on the horizon. ~These are just some quick thoughts. I'm glad that you shared these, they're fun to see!

    For me, Paul, those grass heads work well when in focus but the out of focus ones spoil the scene.

    As Katy said, a little more brightness would help; but you will have to be very careful not to over expose the sky. I suspect that an Adjustment layer with mask is called for, and some very careful editing of the mask.
