Holy Gladiolus, Batman!

Look what I did! As I mentioned in my previous gardening post, I planted lots…I mean LOTS of different kinds of bulbs this Spring. May of my plants have died from over-loving. But some strong ones have come out just magnificently! I have never planted bulbs before and had no idea what half of them would actually look like!

These beauties are growing tall and strong and GORGEOUS! I felt kind of silly, whilst walking through a flower shop with a girl friend, and saying ‘ooohhh…these are beautiful! I’d love to get some of these, but there 15€ a stalk!’. And what did I hear in reply? ‘Why don’t you just wait a few weeks for yours to bloom? You DO know they’re growing in you yard…don’t you?’ Talk about putting on the dunce cap…immediately.

But I must tell you, I’ve been so excited watching these bloom and grow, I just can’t stop myself walking by the flower beds and staring out the windows with a satisfactory smile on my face! πŸ™‚

I am loving having fresh flowers in the house – ALL THE TIME! Winter will be so drab without them.

How is your garden growing?



    • Thank you πŸ™‚ I have a black thumb. I just put them in the ground and prayed. Luckily, we had a really rainy summer and it seemed to have done its magic!

  1. Beautiful. You’ve got the gardening bug now. I think you might enjoy my story, ‘The Garden and The Gardener’ on my blog. Congrats on your success, Miss Green Thumb.

    • Hehe – Miss green thumb…I love it! I’m so sharing that as everyone I know gives me tons of trouble and tells me I have a black thumb πŸ˜‰ I’ll check it out, thanks for the recommendation!
