It's a Girl!

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 17 September 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Ok, I'm silly..... but I don't think I've ever seen a daisy with a center quite like this. It looks like a bow! I thought it was most unusual, but then maybe I don't get out much...... :-)

So, we have a girl Gerbera Daisy with a bow!
