Gerbera Daisy Winter Lovin

Come on Spring!

This Gerbera Daisy of ours is showing her appreciation and anxiousness for Spring with a beautiful red flower.

This particular plant; pot soil and all, has to be in the area of 10 - 12 years old.  I kid you not!  Outside of watering with an occasional Miracle Grow feeding, we've done nothing in terms of maintenance and care.  As I indicated earlier, it's housed in the original pot we planted it in all those years ago and in the same soil.  Yet, she produces many big beautiful flowers all year round.

This is one of about a dozen outside plants that we bring into the basement and winter-over inside.  Then when the weather breaks, and the fear of frost behind us, out they all go back to grace the pool area.
