Crazy Daisy.

My Gerbera daisy is really going crazy this year! It has thirteen blooms right now, would be fourteen if one had not been ceremoniously plucked off by my cheeky little 7-year-old neighbor girl! I am pretty sure if I looked around the roots there are probably more daisies on the way too.

It’s hard to believe that this plant is over five years old, and just survived an infestation of fire ants!  I used some fire ant poison that is safe for flowers and it worked like a charm and started blooming like crazy right after the ants were killed off. It’s awesome how amazing it looks since I was just worried that it would not survive the ants, not to mention these plants are not supposed to live this long! It’s my lucky daisy I guess…
