In the Pink….

….or orange or cream. My Gerber daisies, thanks to Luca and Matti’s grandpop, George, have been providing me color on my back deck.

Thanks to the advice of fertilizing them, they have been taking turns all summer, giving me pretty colors.

I remember last year when I was lamenting that all I had out back looked like Romaine lettuce. All green leaves and no flowers made for a frustrating first year growing Gerbers.

It’s amazing what some friendly advice will give you, if you listen.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Gerbers

it is usually during my afternoon walk with Kasia that I take in the state of other people’ flowers and see how mine are stacking up. If you remember, my friend Isabella’s parents are visiting from Romania and her dad, apparently, is quite the gardener.

If you were to go back to the blog this time last year, you’d have seen how I complained that it looked as if I had pots of romaine instead of Gerber daisies. Silly me! Would I have ever thought to fertilize them? What a difference a year makes.

Always nice to have a gardening wizard in the neighborhood, even for a short while!
