Just to clear things up. Did I miss anything? No resistors or anything? Just making sure :)

levorto, that circuit should be fine for driving your servo.

Your servo will be stronger if you power it with 6v instead of 5v.
Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)

Check that you do not exceed the maximum voltage rating of your servo. Some servos are not designed to operate on 6v.

Thanks :) - What a great and helpful forum! I am looking very much forward to inventing with you guys  :)

Im not worried about the strength of my servo... Let's just say I have that part taken care of :)
