Pretty Yellow Gerbera Daisies in my Flower Garden

I've written about the art of gerbera daisies, my favorite daisy, and lots of other flower art. Now, I've gotten to experience a little of that particular flower art with some pretty yellow gerbera daisies growing in my front yard garden.

In recent blog posts, I was celebrating the beauty of the Sunflower Blossoms in my backyard flower garden. Whilst I didn't plant sunflowers in the front yard, I did put in an impressive gerbera daisy plant. I bought a gallon plant at Lowe's for $12.98. Using Miracle-Gro Potting Mix, I planted the gerbera daisies in the large ceramic plant that housed my African orange and yellow marigolds last year.

What was interesting about these two gerbera daisy photos? When I was organizing my flower pictures after downloading them from my camera, I had to do a double-take. You see, I found these photos in my Sunflower Garden folder. I actually, at first glance, thought they were my blooming sunflowers!

Caring for my gerbera daisies, I make sure they have enough water ... they usually tell me by being a bit droopy. I've put them in a sunny location in the front garden so that they get a lot of direct sunlight and then a little indirect sunlight throughout the day. I've also sprinkled a bit of Miracle-Gro Shake'n Feed Bloom Booster Plant Food which I've been using throughout many different flower gardens this year. Honestly? I've had so many blooms coming off that gerbera daisy plant, I really think the Miracle-Gro should get the credit.

What do you think? Love the gerbera daisies? Do you think they are artistic? Love flower art? Would you have thought that these were sunflower blossoms? Look how many gerbera daisies are blooming in that pot!

Here's a view of the little garden that is along the sidewalk to my front door. The yellow gerbera daisy plant is on the right. To the left, are two yellow daisy bushes which come back from the ground each year. This year, they got some bloom booster plant food. In this garden area, I've added black mulch which contrasts quite nicely with the light gray that I painted the concrete sidewalk. The decorative lighting adds a romantic feel.

Update! I have now captured a few more pictures of those pretty yellow gerbera daisies. Right before we had a soaker rain.

Take a closer look at the three singular yellow gerbera daisy photos, which I have already shared, up above. You'll notice how each one of those has a different blossom center! Amazing that you can get that out of the same gerbera daisy plant.

And, one final look at the yellow gerbera daisy plant in that ceramic pot. I wished that I had started to count the number of blossoms that I have gotten from this plant. I am very satisfied with the quality of this plant that I purchased from Lowe's. I'm thinking that such a plant would be a perfect gift of flowers for mom or the lady in your life. Say it with gerbera daisy flowers! She loves me, she love me not ...
