Flower Power: Gerbera Daisies

It’s becoming quite difficult for me to pass up an opportunity to care for more flowers. Especially because the school semester is over and free time has become plentiful. There are only so many walks around the neighborhood the dachshund will tolerate. There are only so many weeds that need to be pulled from the garden. There are only so many rooms in this house that need vacuuming.

I know, poor me.

Anyway, last week I talked my mother into taking a trip to the local plant nursery so she could “dress up” an area in front of the garage. She ended up going home with three society garlics which I ended up planting for her (so pretty, but the roots are super stinky – good thing they stay underground) and Elle fell in love with a particular shade of a Gerbera daisy. I’m more of a fan of bright colors in the garden, but I figured why not?

I’m happy to say…yep, I’m definitely a fan. They’ve become a favorite in the garden.

  1. Gerberas are faves of mine, too! Seeing them reminds me, I need a trip to the nursery at home depot! I have a gift card with some money left on it, and flowers might be the perfect thing to buy! 😉

    • Ha, whenever I get the urge to spend money, I go to the nursery. It is cheaper than any other things I could possibly spoil myself with.
