117- Gerbera Daisies

I'm not sure if it is the bright electric colors, their happy faces or [and I just learned this] that they are perennials but I just LOVE Gerbera daisies. Although they come in yellow, orange, white, pink or red colors these two are my favorites; with yellow being a close second.

I got these at my favorite WalMart on Friday and [wisely] kept them inside to enjoy. I wish I'd done the same thing with my tomato plants which I left outside, it's been warm right? Yeah, 'til it snowed on Saturday. Gordon rescued them for me but they are looking a little cold shocked...

Joanie, I like the vibrant colors of these Daisy's. I think daisy's are my favorite flower.

These are such pretty flowers, they look like they would be hard to grow. Are they??

I love gerbera daisies!! Clay's mom has already told everyone that is the flower her boys are to wear at her funeral :)

Actually, no they aren't hard to grow. I've had them in pots and in the ground. They've even come back here in Springville after being buried in snow all winter. I was so surprised! I just love their happy colors and sweet faces.
Love you,

You know how much I love gerber daisies! They are just my favorite and I just got some from Walmart too. the potting soil stayed on the porch BUT the fantastic flowers are still hanging out on the counter...scarlet, pink, golden yellow, and an interesting creamy one with a soft pink center. Delicious! Can't wait to have a free minute to plant them.
