They like it... and I like them

I've moved my gerbera daisies to the window of my sewing room for the winter. Even though it's a cool spot, it's a south window, so they get full sunshine. They're thriving so far.

During the summer outside, they seemed to take turns blooming. But now they're even both blooming at once.

The coolness makes the flowers last longer. Lovely!

Since I took these photos, the stems on the red ones have gotten taller, too, so they look almost as nice as the yellow ones. I hope I can keep them going through the winter!

Great pictures and what a way to brighten up your sewing room. My only question is what happens when the snow covers the basement window? Sorry to ruin your day and mention snow! As always Mark

MARK!!! Hush!! You may not mention that deep 's' word so early in the season! I refuse to think about it!!! ;)

Oh, now I almost wish I had saved mine! But really 3 winters is enough. I emptied my containers into the yard waste bin last night. I'll get fresh ones in the spring.

Besides, Chester thinks that a planter of Gerbera Daisies is his own personal salad bowl. Mine never look that good in the house. Enjoy the blooms and dream of spring!

Yours survived 3 winters, Kris? Wow, that's great!

Yep - cats! I've wondered what would happen if, like Mark suggested, the window gets covered with snow and I tried putting it in the living room windows. Josie would probably be thrilled. :(

So bright and pretty! I'm not mentioning the "s" word.
