Today!





Delicate green fingers slowly open to reveal delightful red fingers.......
Grown from seedlings, the anticipation adds to the joys.

You had me at Gerbera! I love that second one especially, the fresh green unfurling, very delicate and it's wonderful/amazing knowing what's inside!

Seeing Each Day said...

Your photos tend to make me fall in love with any flower you feature but I have to say gerberas(and hydrangeas) are at the very top of my personal list so this post is rather special - particularly fond of your 'five days ago' and your second last capture.

msdewberry said...

Awesome series of photos! I have to admit I like the back side of any flower, gerbera daisies are very pretty!

rainfield61 said...

You counted the days.

But the flower hates the numbers.
