Sorry.  Can't help you.

If I could tell you what I'm trying to say, I wouldn't need to photograph it.


Seriously, if one of my photos need an explanation, then it's failed
as a photo.  If the photo doesn't work for you, I'm fine with that.
I'm happy that you looked and commented, and for that I thank you.


ps:  Further to the above, I will agree that some photos do need some
explanation - without that explanation the photo may make  no sense.
This isn't one of those photos.  You're right, it's a bike leaning
against some flowers, and that's as far as it goes.  Either it speaks
to you or it doesn't...
