Gladiola – It’s in the name.

It’s right in there…GLAD.

Yesterday, at a local grocery store I stumbled across some gladiolas on sale. Delighted, I scooped up the bright red ones for my mantel. As I glanced at them from time to time, they just made me happy….glad.

Watching a gladiola bloom up the stalk is like watching the whole of spring in fast-forward. Each blossom is sweet, but together on the stalk they dramatically say, “I am apologetically magnificent.

Thank you, gladiolas, for gracing my living room.
