this or that thursday: gerbera daisy

It's hard to pick an absolute favorite flower because there are just too many gorgeous ones to choose from. I do think if I was able to choose, my favorite would be somewhere in the daisy family, like this gerbera daisy...





That's all I have today, and now it's time for you to share. There are just a few rules.
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, just link up below!

  1. Me too. Gerberas, I love them. And then they ask me why, saying they are 'only daisies'. Yes, but what a daisy! That colour is so lovely. I'd like to see a colour chart of that image.

  23. Beautiful! The way you've captured this lovely flower makes it look almost 3D - as if I could reach out and touch those soft petals. Daisy's are really beautiful, aren't they? Amazing colors in your photo!!

  24. For me, it's a toss up between the gerbera daisy and the tulip. The daisy might be a bit more versatile to photograph, though - it looks great from almost any angle.
    I love your photo!
