After a few days of using the P&S, I decided to pull out the DSLR and shoot a few pics of stuff outside before it started to rain again. I came across these gorgeous gerberas planted in a container along the side of my neighbour's house . I edited the colours a bit to really emphasize the large bloom.
A bit of information on these beautiful blooms: Gerberas are an ornamental plant from the sunflower family and are very popular and widely used as a decorative garden plant or as cut flowers. In fact, it is the fifth most used cut flower in the world (after the rose, carnation, chrysanthemum, and tulip).
