A Few more 'Glads'

42 comments


Haven’t been out much for a few days, as have been rather poorly, but after a little wander today noticed a few more gladiolus from my freebies were opened up. So here are a few pics for you to see.

Plus a few others -
Yellow crocosmia

and a white Freesia

Lovely pictures of lovely flowers. I'm glad they have come back in to fashion. I planted 3 lots of bulbs but 2 packets have not produced any flowers. Anyone know why? The others did well though.

Thank you for your comments Marshmallow, no idea why yours didnt flower, but saying that, not many of the ones I had last year have flowered either.

Gorgeous Glads, I love them and always buy them for in the house when in season, they make such a statement.
Get better soon Cinders x

i love the purple one too..my fave has to be the Fresia..i hope you get well soon too..:o)

16 Aug, 2011

 

Thank you Val. I agree they do make a statement, but I haven't picked much for indoors this year, I just love to see it all in the garden. Did pick a lovely bunch of sweet peas today though, I think they benefit from cutting.

Thank you so much Sue.

They are doing well Cinders so many lovely glads. I just love the yellow crocosmias too. Hope you are feeling tons better today.

17 Aug, 2011

 

Thanks HB. I quite like the yellow crocosmia too. Strangely they seem to be diminishing. Used to have a clump like the orange ones, but its getting smaller. I am still not 100% better, but getting there thanks.

You take care of yourself! I don't think the non-summery weather helps, does it.

I had a surprise this week - I thought that none of my Gladioli had survived, but there are two about to flower. I wish they were the colour of your lovely mauve one, but no such luck. :-(

17 Aug, 2011

 

Thank you Spritz. That mauve one is lovely, I shall have to put a label round that one so I can remember which one it is for next year ! I still have a few to come out so hoping for some more surprises. Shame most of yours didnt come up, but at least two to look forward to.

I'm late to all the blogs (again) but I'm pleased to see these lovely pics ... were your Gladdies a GW magazine offer, Cinders? .... I have some very similar to yours so wondered if they were the same offer? ... Two have snapped over in the wind ... :o(( ...... Glad to hear you're on the road to recovery ... :o)))

17 Aug, 2011

 

No it was with the Daily Express Garden Magazine, if you placed an order over a certain amount they sent 50 glads with the order, so a friend and I shared. I've been very pleased with them. Thanks for comments, I feel a lot better this evening thank goodness.

17 Aug, 2011

Just found your page so am looking at most of your recent blogs ,so I'm hoping by now you are better.I love the yellow crocosmia, I've not seen one before.Your Glads. are lovely. I made the mistake of including them in my allotment border and the calendulars towered above them.I have just removed them all now (mildew) and 1 or 2 Glads, are just about to open now they can see the light of day.

23 Aug, 2011

 

Thank you for looking at my blogs and pictures Rose, I am feeling better now, the yellow crocosmia dont seem to be so proliferous as the orange, but I agree it is lovely. Glad you will be able to see your Glads better now.

23 Aug, 2011

 

Sorry to hear that you have not been very well, my friend, and hope that you have fully recovered now, and enjoying that glorious garden of yours..\0/x
