Gladiolas are some of my favourite flowers. When we were kids my mom and my aunt, just down the road, grew these immense gardens which fed us all, (and the many people who came through our homes), all year. Among the veggies and fruit were yards full of flowers and rows of these fabulous glads in a rainbow of colour. This, on top of all kinds of other agrarian and culinary feats every day of their lives…..like milk cows and a hen house full of chickens. These women are both still gardening….my mom (with Dad’s help) in her late 80’s!
I remember bringing armfuls of these to rellies and friends and enjoying the vases stuffed full of them in our own home. So no wonder the very sight of them makes me “glad”!
