174/365 - The Gift of Flowers

I'm not normally a fan of giving / receiving cut flowers, but Erica enjoys them so much that she has slowly converted me. I used to think they were a waste of money until I realized how they brighten up a room and bring a smile to my face. Especially if the flower is one I truly enjoy. Some of my favorites? The Tulip, The Lilac, The Peony, The highly fragrant Oriental Lily, just to name a few.

I think I have another new favorite - the Gerbera Daisy. I have seen them popping up at the nursery and the grocery's floral department. Erica found a picture on the internet and set it up as our PC's wallpaper. Apparently, she likes them too.

So it was fitting that Erica should receive a trio of Gerbera daisies as a birthday gift from Kathleen's mom. Kathleen's sister, Melanie insisted on the daisies - she thinks they're special, too.

They delivered the flowers yesterday and I have been taking pictures. Those big blooms with the gorgeous centers. So much to love!

I love these pictures. Gerbera Daisies are my favorites, I actually had them for my bridal bouquet too. I love their color and that look of perfection.
