Happy Shadows

Gerbera

This week we had a lot of Gerber Daisies in the store.  Karrie was working on bouquets for a wedding, while I was snapping some shadows of these happy flowers.

So, when we were getting this post ready, I thought I'd put the Latin name of the Gerber under the picture.  Usually it's some long, fanciful name...nope!  Gerbera - I think you all can figure that flower name out!  So...while checking out the latin name, we saw that the Gerber daisy represents happiness and friendship....perfect for our Shadow Shot Sunday friends!

If you've never joined Shadow Shot Sunday, or have never come along on a shadow adventure - what are you waiting for?  Every week there's shadows galore, with happiness and friendship waiting....over at Hey Harriet!

This seems like an artistic rendering of the sun, with its rays emanating from the cornea shaped center. Lovely take, beautiful artistry!
