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!

  9. Congratulations on the gladioli. Bulbs are often hit and miss. I’m sure that, if you read my posts, you’ll have an idea of how our garden grows

      Thanks! I needed to hear that. How long are bulbs good for if they didn’t all make it into the ground?
      Oh, I know how your garden grows and there is no comparison. Yours is Goooooorgeous!
