So I am not sure why but recently I have this insane obsession with Gerber Daisies. Not to mention, they are my wedding flower of choice! Maybe it's the fact that they come in a ton of resilient colors, or the fact that they are so simple they are just flat out beautiful or maybe it's that when I see a Gerber Daisy, it makes me "perk" up for no reason! They are just so darn cute!
In saying this, I have set myself a new goal. It's not a BIG goal by any means but it's a definitely a goal I have set for myself that I thought would never even come to mind. Drum roll please...
I am going to grow my own Gerber Daisy plant, from tiny seed to beautiful bloom!
Why, you ask, is this a big deal? Well, possibly because the last thing I ever planted on my own was a lima bean plant in a dixie cup in Kindergarten. Let's just say it's been a while...
No really, it's a big deal because to grow something it takes time, commitment, research, and dedication. It's pretty darn fascinating to see something grow from nothing to something, whether it's a flower or a baby! (And, no, I don't have "baby fever" so don't even go there...especially you, mother...it was just a phrase!)
The first thing on my list of things to do is to actually find gerber daisy seeds. Beau and I searched high and low at Lowe's last night only to be disappointed. So for future reference, Lowe's isn't the best place to go when you need seeds! I guess my next stop will be Houston Garden Center...if they don't have seeds I'm doomed!
How can anyone not appreciate the simple beauty of a gerber daisy?
