Flowers

I just love flowers! While we were dating, I never once told the Man that I didn't like flowers because I really, really like flowers. My favorite flowers are gladiolus and I planted several behind my white rose bushes in front of the house. Last year, the neighborhood landscape people tore out my glads before they were done. See, once they shoot up and bloom, you're supposed to let the whole stock die and turn brown before you pull it out. This ensures that the corm (like a bulb) has enough to regrow in the next season. Since they were pulled up too early, I wasn't sure I was going to get many.


Look great, don't they? Even if they are only in patches...




My favorite ones are the white flowers. And then I finally got my promised service from that church activity so long ago...




Sooooo pretty! And they smell just lovely! Ahhhh...I love flowers.

I LOVE the flowers in your yard!!! I love having flowers in my yard:) I love flowers too, but I guess since I worked at a florist for years I am not one to want cut flowers! I am too pratical and see them as a waste b/c they die so quick! But they are beautiful and do smell good!
