Orange Gerbera Daisy

Orange Gerbera Daisy

The Gerbera Daisy is part of the sunflower family. Just looking at one of these flowers makes me feel happy because they remind me of a big, bright smiling face. I always have at least one flower in a vase next to my work space, many of which have been these beautiful daisies…and believe me, they have done wonders to keep my spirit lifted. How can anyone look at one of these flowers and not smile? πŸ™‚

I know, ANOTHER poppy photo…but it’s a different day, different angle, different color. πŸ™‚ This one is orange. I love these flowers, I really do. They just kind of pop open, spread their petals out as far as possible, and amaze and amuse with how bright and beautiful they are. I read the other day that it has been said of these flowers “once seen, known forever”…and I think that must be true. They can be the brightest bright or the palest pale, but always, always so delicate and beautiful.
