Gerbera Daisies and Persian Shield

I happened to have scissors in my pocket when I noticed these daisies had lain down in the garden. I grabbed a bit of Persian Shield as I passed it and made a little bouquet. They were kind of wilty from the heat, but hot water perked them right up.


  1. You just happened to have a scissors in your pocket??? Now that made me smile. Pink and purple is one of my favorite flower color combinations. You did good with this bouquet. I didn't know about hot water perking up wilted flowers. Would have thought it would do the oppposite.

  2. I didnt know that about hot water either. I like to cut my flowers and bring them in.
    I am checking out your other blog, Mary Zelda. Looks very interesting.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
