I haven’t been doing much photography lately due to all the rain, so I’m digging into the archives for this shot of Gerbera daisies.
The Gerbera is named for German botanist and doctor Traugott Gerber who was a friend of Carl Linnaeus. It is the fifth most popular cut flower in the world, according to Wiki.
“Linnaeus” seems to be a common answer on the TV program Jeopardy. I was saddened to hear that the host, Alex Trebek, has Stage IV pancreatic cancer. I hope he can beat it. We so enjoyed the live taping.
Great weekend, everyone….
Love these gorgeous daisies. Unfortunately, so do our resident deer!
Oh no! I had the same problem in Michigan. Our neighbors wrapped their favorite evergreens in canvas every year so the deer wouldn’t get them.
I love that pinkish luminescence.
So beautiful. Btw – I’m having a hard time commenting on your blog. Do you have the same issue with mine? I have to enter my details every time. Like on most blogs that have their own domain. I noticed a while ago.
