Here is a photo of a bouquet of Gerbera I bought in the middle of last week. I read on the net they can last for two weeks or longer without wilting if you prepare them properly. Which I did, so I think I will be able to enjoy them for quite a while still 🙂 That’s if they were fresh when I bought them 😉
I had forgotten the name of this flower so I looked it up on Google where it says it’s also called Turk’s cap. I learned the flower may be from pink, purple and white to brown and even black. I have seen them only in pink and white. I don’t have of these in my garden. These grow in the garden of a friend of mine. Google also mention it’s highly toxic to cats.
I saw these from the car growing on the roadside. As so very often when I see something when we are driving I shouted to my husband to stop, stop, stop. It was a windy day. The flowers were swaying a lot. I would have loved to take some close ups but it was impossible. Instead I took a short video clip.
