One of our local nurseries was having a sale on Gerbera Daisies.
I had some orange plastic pots that I had saved from last year
and they just happened to fit in my wrought iron hanger
that I use on my railing.

I spray painted them black and voila!!
I should have spray painted the planter hooks while I was at it.
(next year)

These two were left over so I planted them in a crock 
for my little table.

I have always loved the blemish free colors of these daisies.
They require a lot of water and I hope they last til frost.
They probably won't..most things don't last thru the August heat.
Geraniums are tried and true 
which is why I use them everywhere else.
We'll see what happens..
I hope I'm not looking for more Geraniums in late July.

Pretty for now....Have a beautiful week.
Happy May.

I have always loved Gerbera daisies. Nice job on the pots. I see Miss Mollie looking on as you snapped the picture. So sweet.
Wishing you a Happy May Day!

There are times when this sort of flower looks less real than the plastic ones - crazy colours.

Gerbera Dasies are so bright and pretty . . .
I love them but can't seem to keep them perky like yours.
Great idea for the hanging rail container . . .
Maybe I should try some again!

Missy, Those daisies looks so good. I think the black make the colors pop even more. Blessings to you. Hope May is pleasant. xoxo, Susie
