Gladiolas remind me of my childhood. My mother grew them in the front and along the side of our house. Standing tall, they symbolize sincerity and strength of character.
A few weekends ago when we babysat our granddaughter overnight, her parents gave us these gladiolas. They were tight buds but opened up beautifully.
Actually, I would have given THEM flowers for the privilege of looking after the little one, herself a bundle of pink sweetness.
