Still Hanging On




This gerbera daisy is still hanging on.
It hasn't gotten the message that it is winter
and it's COLD!




Gerbera



"Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts." 
~Dodinsky


Wishing YOU well and much joy.

Those gerberas do hang in. Mine were still blooming, too, up until last week when the frost finally got them. They are happy little flowers.

We do get a lot of sunshine from flowers in general and especially from the lovely image you shared!
Thank you and have a great new week!

Gotta love a plant that defies the cold weather!

Crafty Gardener said...

that is one persistent gerbera daisy.

Maggie said...

What a valiant little flower, love this!

Pamela Gordon said...

Persistent indeed. I love gerberas and used to plant them here too but the earwigs also love them and I don't love earwigs. :) Have a great day!

Bill Nicholls said...

Well the buds are on our trees & the daffs are popping up at our place. Thanks for coming by my blog, do come by again

It only takes one little flower to bring sunshine into our lives.
I'm amazed your gerbera has survived the cold of winter Snap - a brave one indeed!

Lorrie said...

That's a very persistent gerbera. I have a vase full in my house, but they were purchased at the store. Still, they've lasted more than 2 weeks and are still lovely. Flowers are so cheery.

Terri B said...

Pretty- and definitely a fighter to hang on this long. Have a great day!

I'm sorry it's taken me awhile to visit this week, Snap. That flower must be pretty hardy! Talk about the expression, "Bloom where you're planted."
