The last of the gladiolus blooms appeared last weekend and has graced my kitchen window with its beauty, throughout the week. I found this one laying face down on my lawn, after a steady rain caused the stalk to snap.
I look forward to next season with just as much anticipation. They are some of my favorite flowers, and with such a beautiful variety of colors, there seems to be something for everyone.

    Love the natural lighting – they do look wistful for passing summer … (like me, suddenly gone cold here today!)

  • Oh! It’s very very nice here today. Crystalline blue skies, passing white clouds, a breeze, butterflies in the air, perfect! Thank you, Panda… : )
