Quote of the day:
In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

I can’t remember seeing gladioli growing wild like this. They’ve always been one of my least-favorite flowers, but I’ve usually seen them in those overblown bouquets provided for banquets and funerals. I suppose some varieties are bred for size and numbers of blooms, but these I really like.
🙂 Pleased you like these. I fell in love with them when we lived in the Canaries where they seem to have naturalised across the vegetation-colonised lava flows.
That’s gorgeous! The white Camassias stand out really well, and I love the idea of having pink gladioli in a meadow. 😃
🙂 Thanks Cathy!
This is so beautiful and inspiring, Allison. I love the pop of pink. I’ve not seen white camassia, it is quite delicate and pretty. I might be ordering some camassia this fall!
Glad to have given you an idea … albeit borrow from Christopher Lloyd 🙂
