I bought some glads at the store today… they weren’t very much, only $5 for the bunch.
My mom and grandma used to grow gladiolus, and we’d get them from the flower-girl who came door-to-door of a Saturday as well. My mom doesn’t grow them anymore. I think she must have stopped during one of the yard-re-dos … probably when she pulled out her flower beds and replaced them with bark.
I haven’t gotten them in so long that my kids didn’t recognize them, since they’ve not started to open yet. What a travesty!
I hate the drought. I hate not being able to plant pretty things. I hate the weeds that take over my yard after the spring rains because I don’t have an established lawn, because grass is thirsty.
The drought is over, but … it’s not like I live somewhere rain can be taken for granted. More thought is required!
More cut flowers … a must-do.
