Nuance

I hope this post does justice to the beautiful color of these Gerbera daisies. They are in a rustic metal pot on my back porch and are the most stunning salmon color. Not pink, not coral, but a delicate shade that just makes you appreciate nature's endless palette.
This little friend kept coming out onto the patio where Tanner (the tomato-stealing dog) kept eyeing him. I shooed him away into the garden twice before having to leave. I sure hope he stayed put, because Tanner's taste for tomatoes is only second to bugs!!

I don't actually pick them, but I should look into that because I'd love to have them bloom more/longer!
