I have finally completed my Gerberas!
While I was looking over some Gerbera arrangements, I realized that most of them had the native leaves removed, so I figured it made sense to make them this way. I might make a potted one still this month with just one or two flowers, and that one will have the leaves included. :) I also wrapped the stems with embroidery floss this time. They're such sweet flowers, I thought they needed a nice luxurious finish. I almost switched the centers, so the dark pink would have white centers, and the light pink ones would be all light pink, but I thought the colors popped more this way. These babies have been listed in my Etsy Shop!
Also look for a Gerbera barrette in the next few days. Maybe a regular Daisy one as well, if time allows. I'd like to start on a bonsai tree I've been wanting to make for my husband. Our wedding anniversary is next month, so I thought it would be a nice little gift for him.
Since it's getting close to the end of the month, I need to start deciding on next month's flower. I have two ideas that I'd like to work on, so I'm going to ask for a vote.
What do you think May's Flower of the Month should be?
- Orchid (In this case I'd be making a couple of potted Orchids, hopefully two varieties, along with a few accessories).
- Rose (I'd begin work on a large rose wall hanging, and possibly a potted mini rose bush).
