Gorgeous Gerberas



















Gerberas are the flower of the week in our home - for this week.
Did you know that they are part of the sunflower family?
When you look at them it is a bit obvious isn't it?

I need to learn more about our beautiful flowers, so next week I will be starting a weekly A-Z  post on our local flowers grown in Brisbane.
Flowers that either I have grown, or my friends have grown and they have suited our climate.

How about that for a challenge?
Hoping to show you fab photos and find interesting facts and information.

Have an extra-ordinary day today.

Beautiful flowers and gorgeous images. Aren't they so cheery! I have a dark pink gerbera flowing out in the backyard at the moment. I'm not sure how it's surviving the cold!
