Misconception
I used to believe that canning jars were for... well... canning. Peaches, beans, applesauce, pears, and tomatoes are a few things that I have filled my bottles with in the past. That was all well and good, but the other day I learned that I was misusing those jars! Canning jars were made SOLELY for the purpose of being vases for Gerber Daisies. There is no other reason. None whatsoever! The canning jar is the PERFECT vase for these lovelies...Who needs to put food in a jar like this, when you can have such beautiful flora in there instead?Oh, and the fact that I love Gerber Daisies more than any other flower on the planet has nothing to do with it... nothing at all...
Do you think it would be a little overboard to fill my 100+ canning jars with daisies??

Not at all. You're absolutely right. Seeing them in those photos, I can imagine no other purpose for those jars.

Sorry, Melissa, that previous comment was me--I only use that account when I comment on my son's blog.

My daughter, Heidi, loves Gerber daisies, too. I love all the colors you can find--they are so bright and make you feel so good.

I would love you to post a piciture of your 100 jars with the Gerber daisies.

They're gorgeous. I picked up some tulips at the store this week and they look so springy on my table.

I think jars and daisies go so well together. It makes you think of a country cottage.

Gerber daisies belong in Gerber baby food jars.

I'm thinking of planting some Gerber daisies this year and your hot pink ones have really inspired me!
