Ruby Tuesday #57: "Make Your Daisy A Gerber Daisy"

"Not Your Usual Daisy Color"
Raleigh, NC - September 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

At least I'm pretty sure that's what this flower is called. I assume the person who developed it was named Gerber. and that it wasn't initially grown in a heap of composted baby food or something.

You know, I like this one in color better.

I wish I could have taken you with me to the Ren Fest this weekend! I forgot my camera (after finding the battery charger being lost since my trip to St L, and making sure the camera was charged and ready to go...). I'm sure that's never happened to you! :D Of course, I kept seeing the most awesome shots of stuff... Oh well. Maybe some other time. :)

This flower is of a bold ruby, the petals alive with red. A fine photo, it almost looks as if you captured a macro view of a red drop of paint hit the floor and exploded into this flower. A wonderful capture!

Oh my, Mojo, what a RED!! I did a double take at that aisle with the Cheerios and took a couple of shots quickly. Of course cannolis are heart-healthy - they make you happy! :) Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Gerberas are very popular for bouquets in Israel. I like them, they're such happy looking flowers, and this one is no exception.
