Saturday

Beautiful African Daisy, Gerbera Flowers

These are lovely flowers. Gerbera was named in honour of the German botanist and naturalist Traugott Gerber. It is commonly known as the African Daisy. I bought these flowers and planted in our garden but it won't last during winter time. After that I never buy it anymore. Sometimes when I visit the garden center, I just take images of it. The ones you see below were taken during one of my visits in the garden center. I am glad that the gardener let me took some photos.

I wish every one a happy weekend..Be safe always!

Gerbera species bear a large capitulum with striking, two-lipped ray florets in yellow, orange, white, pink or red colours.

Gerbera is very popular and widely used as a decorative garden plant or as cut flowers.

Haven't seen these Gerberas in a long time -they look bright and also "sturdy" (don't know if they really are:) ).

HESTER’S LETTER

Hester’s letter, scarlet “A,”
Gave the gossips much to say,
But their rudeness she forbore,
For she knew she was no whore.
