A few months ago, my sisters and I held a birthday party for our Mom, in honor of her 80th birthday. As party favors, we sent home small bags of gladiolus bulbs with the guests. I tucked mine away in the basement, along with the extras, and almost forgot they were there! I planted them a bit late, but they're now happily beginning to bloom.
The colors are striking...this was the first one to bloom...
Just to think what I would have missed, had I forgotten completely!
