Whenever I'm at the grocery store I love to saunter over to the floral department to look over the lovely bouquets available. I'm always enthralled by the beauty of the blooms and different types on display. One flower in particular has always caught my eye, the gorgeous Gerbera daisy. This delightful beauty comes in a variety of colors that include white, hot pink, dark red, orange and yellow to name just a few. Another interesting fact about these flowers is that you can see other hues within the original colors, especially around the centers which can range from dark to a light yellow.
