 A few weeks ago, just as the sun had gone down, I stopped by a local florist, and snapped this "gerber daisy" photo with my iPhone.

  2. I love daisies because of their simplicity. But Gerbera daisies always get my attention because they look so dressed up in all their colorful petals.

  38. Hi Diane,

    Gerbera daisies have always been one of my favourite flowers, because of their size, longevity and the fantastic array of colours they come in, although I can't recall ever seeing that particular shade of delicate pink.

    I trained as a florist, many years ago, when I first left school and Gerbera's were just becoming available to buy, at that time.

    I can't believe the selection of flowers that are available all year round now and often think back fondly to those days of making bouquets and floral tributes.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Yvonne
