My Gerber Daisy

As an addendum to the previous posts about my (current lack thereof) green thumb I would like to note that (drum roll please), I grew a gerber daisy! Yes I did! Mrs. R and Mrs. O had me a wonderful Brunch Bridal Shower and that was the centerpiece and my little treat to take home. Well of course it abruptly died. (Why? Because plants come to me to die.) So I trimmed it back and "deadheaded" it and sat it on the front porch. And you know what? It found new growth! It bloomed! I have a beautiful hot pink gerber daisy alive and well. My darling husband may note that he watered it, but that is so beside the point. I watered it some too and it grew! My luck is changing. I'm going to grow plants and they are going to be beautiful!
