GLADIOLI AT THE MINI-FLORIST – Marilyn Armstrong

Gladioli by the bunch – 9-9-19

I took the camera to the florist today, something I haven’t done in a really long time. I discovered they actually sell orchids now and I hinted VERY broadly that I would really, really, REALLY like to have one.

So for today’s Flowers du jour, it’s gladioli. The first bunch are “normal” processing and the second is a more graphic presentation. Otherwise, there was not a hint of fall to be seen. Not even the yellow leaves on the aspen trees. Everything is as green as it was in the middle of July.

  1. I always thought gladioli were for funerals as I always saw them in arrangements at funeral homes. Now I am OK with them. John brought home a big bunch a couple weeks ago, much to my surprise. They looked really nice.

  6. We are getting a little color up in NH. A red or yellow tree here or there. Not ahead of schedule, but not really behind either. Nice flowers.
