Just A Pink Flower

A couple of weeks ago at the grocery store, they were selling off their remaining bedraggled plants at 15 cents.  I am always a sucker for a plant in need of a good home!  The gerbera daisy below, with mostly brown leaves and mystery bloom colour, came home with me.  It found a new home in an old kettle with some nutritious potting soil, and voila, in two weeks it has come back to life and gifted me with this stellar pink blossom.  The layered candy pink petals, and maroon button center with frilled edge, are pure delight.  And there is another bud pushing through - well worth the 15 cents!
