"I Feel Like A Wilted Gerbera!"
Oh the hot sticky humidity of a midsummer's day. No matter how many fans you have blowing it seems like you can't stop sweating. At one point in the flower shop today I said "I feel like a wilted gerbera daisy." Upon which I was reminded that to revive a wilted gerbera you cut off the stem, plunge it in fresh water, and give it a good misting with the spray bottle and pop it in the fridge. Thankfully, no one "refreshed" me quite that way...
And then someone said, "you ARE like a gerbera daisy - colourful, playful and fun. If you were a flower, you would be a bright purple gerbera daisy." I love that idea. Every flower communicates a different feeling and experience to the person who is viewing it, much like individual paintings in the gallery. I started thinking about my friends and what flowers they might all be based on their characteristics.
So if you were a flower, what flower would you be?
