  3. I've always loved gladiolas. When I was a child, our neighbor grew them along her back wall, and I was mesmerized with the way they bloomed going up the stem. Yours are gorgeous. Such a pretty color, not as bright as most. I like this delicate shade much better.

  4. I love glads and always had them in the beds. But they multiply so much that I had to remove them. I do miss them at this time of year. Lovely macros Jennifer.

  7. I guess gladioli have fallen out of favor, at least here in New England, but how I love them. Your frilly pink ones are so pretty. And I love the gaudy old fashioned red ones I see in some gardens just as much!

  11. Gladioli are one of my favorite flowers, and I am so glad I stopped by to catch a glimpse of your delicate beauties. I have not had much time this year to stop and really look closely and deeply into their blooms. Thanks for taking such lovely photos!

  12. You most certainly found the beauty Jennifer. I am wishing I planted some now! They don't always overwinter here so unless I buy some, I don't reliably have them. Most of the time anymore, I use them in containers instead of planting in the garden. I sure wish I had a few at this moment!

  13. So Sweet and So Pretty. I glad I bought some bulb for spring planting this year. It will be our first time growing them. But I have not seen this colour when I shopped for those bulbs.

  21. What beautiful pictures, and a lovely pale pink. I grew gladiolus for the first time this year, they were a gift from a blue multipack. They bloomed recently and are bright red! Quite a suprise but I do like them. I think I will plant them again, maybe a different colour though. :)
