Sunflower sister

My post this past Tuesday was of a sunflower. Another member of the sunflower family is the Gerbera Daisy. These are beautiful, hearty flowers that thrive in sun. In the wild, they are found in Africa, South America, and Asia. As one of the most popular flowers in the world, Gerberas are known to represent cheerfulness and purity.

This particular daisy is one I have nurtured this summer. It has continued to bloom despite the crazy heat we've had in the past week. Working in my garden is something I find relaxing. It also provides  a creative outlet that I enjoy. There is such true pleasure in watching flowers grow and bloom.
