Gerbera Daisies

Soooo I tried acrylic painting for the first time in a while. With non-Australian Mother’s Day coming up, I did a little something for my momma whose favorite flower is the gerbera daisy. I could’ve worked on it longer, but our lord B. Ross in heaven says to not piddle crap to death. So I stopped.

Yeh, don’t forget mother’s day, mothers tend to be rather important in the circle of life

Playing Games

Pairing: Seth Rollins x Reader

Summary: You and Seth have been playing this game for months now with neither of you truly admitting your feelings for one another. Though, now that you’ve been called up to the main roster from NXT, some things are going to have to change.

A/N: I have no idea if Seth Rollins is actually allergic to peaches or not, but like if he was, that would honestly be torture because I fricken love peaches and he’d really be missing out on the best fruit ever. 

**************************************************

“Brought you, your favorite, regular Peach Beach with vitamin blend and whey protein enhancers”. 

“Ugh, Lopez, you are far too good to me”. 

“Hey, don’t say I never gave you anything”. 

Gladly, you reach for the smoothie cup placed on the table in front of you and stick the straw between your lips. Seth Rollins - who was always the people pleaser - stands across the table with his arms crossed over his chest, patiently waiting for that sigh of content that always comes from your mouth after gulping down the first sip of your favorite drink. Soon enough, the cold liquid slides down your throat and you move the straw from your mouth, throwing your head back, and letting out a long, satisfying groan. 

God, I can’t believe you’re allergic to peaches, you are seriously missing out on the best fruit”. 

“Eh, I’m more of a pineapple guy myself really.”, Seth shrugs with a growing smirk to match his teasing behavior.

Gerbera - simple cheerfulness

The Gerbera hybrida hasn’t even existed for much more than a century, and it’s already joined the ranks behind roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and tulips as one of the most popular flowers in the world. Maybe it’s its uncanny flowerness that does it- when you look at them they look too much like a cartoon, almost plastic, made by somebody told to sculpt the most generic flower-shape they can imagine.

What we know as the Gerbera is an intensively cultivated hybrid between two South African species, viridifolia and jamesonii- the latter named after Robert Jameson, a Scottish immigrant to South Africa who fought in the Anglo-Zulu war who dug for gold in Barberton and sent specimens of the Transvaal daisies growing there to England. However, it’s not the English that really popularised the plant. Of course, the biggest commercial benefactors of this South African native flower were (who else) the Dutch. Dutch breeding programmes made the Gerbera the way we know it today, and even now it’s still changing: a sturdier stem, brighter colours with more variety, less light response… Anything to make a ‘perfect’ flower.

If the Gerbera is the perfect semiotic base example of “flower”, then that’s all it will ever need to be. It’s the most simple, surface gesture: cheerfulness with neither depth nor history. A perfect plant of artifice.

3 Scientific reasons to put more plants in your room

1. They purify the air in your room (less stuffiness/ easier breathing/ less headaches/ less allergies) Gerbera Daisies are best for this. 

2. Having plants in your room significantly reduces cold/flu like symptoms. 

3. A study in England showed that students showed up to 70% more alertness in a room full of plants rather than without. So placing more plants should help you focus on your work!
