A Splash Of Happiness
Photograph - Photography
This photograph was taken while visiting a local supermarket in my area. The market is a great place to find flowers, fruits, and vegetable for photographing. The color of this Gerber blossom caught my eye while photographing. The vivid red color and the detail in the center drew me in to take a closer look. The gerbera daisy was discovered in 1884 near Barberton, South Africa, by Scotsman Robert Jameson. While the flower's scientific name, Gerbera jamesonii, recollects the name of its founder, the meaning of its common name draws from German naturalist Traugott Gerber. The Gerber daisies meanings include innocence, purity, and cheerfulness and because it is a part of the daisy family it is a classic symbol of beauty.
Orange gerbera daisies grow bright orange blossoms with bright green leaves that curl up around the edges. The flowers bloom in spring, growing best in full sunlight with rich, moist soil. Gerbera daises have long, thin, oval-shaped petals which grow outward from the large, yellow flower center.
Brightly-colored orange gerbera daisies represent feelings of warmth and creativity. Giving orange gerbera daisies to someone will convey a message of friendship and kindness. Because of the bold color, orange gerbera daises also represent sunshine and happiness.
I hope you have enjoyed this photograph and will share it with others. You can see more of my work on my homepage. Thank you for visiting and please come back.
