New Blooms

It was back in May that I planted Gladiolus bulbs out front of the house with hopes of beautiful flowers filling that space. When they started to sprout their leaves, I was going out daily to count the number that had started growing, and after a few weeks, all had made their appearance. Unfortunately, with all the rain, a couple of them didn’t do too well and their leaves turned brown as they died. But for only 3 or 4 out of 32 to do that…that’s not too bad, right?

Anyways, I noticed the other day that there were finally buds forming. This morning, two of those had started to bloom. They’re even more beautiful than the pictures!

While I was out watering, I noticed something quite amusing in one of my flower pots in which I have some little annuals planted. There was a single little snapdragon, same color as the ones I had in there last year, that decided he wanted to join the other flowers. Life’s just grand…and he knows it.

  1. One little snap dragon went to seed last year, aww. It’s not bad that you only lost a couple glads, cos that period of rain we had was really unusual, and it’s good it didn’t hurt more stuff than it did. You grow flowers!
