A Gift of Flowers......

My Father-In-Law brought these beautiful Gladioli to us on Friday.
He apparently has 400 plants flowering at the moment. All colours of the rainbow.

They remind me so much of my dear Grandad, who also loved to grow Gladioli and also Dahlias.


They are huge, so I had to find the biggest container to stand them in.
It's been lovely having them in the house over the weekend.


We have also been blessed with some beautiful rain this week. Around 50mm in all during the last week. Everything is looking so much happier as a result.

WOW Leisa....such a variety of colours! So pretty!
It was beautiful rain and I am almost believing that we may be having a "NORMAL" season...yay!
It is so wonderful to see all the greeness as I drive around the area. Now let's hope we get more to go in the dams. Hope you have a good week, Angela.

What gorgeous Gladiolus your Father-in-law grew. Lovely colors and they are fun to grow also. Our weather here in Southern California is very nice at the moment. Very Fall. Happy Monday!

How lovely your flowers are, you certainly are very lucky and to have some rain also. Would love to see a photo of the 400 gladies in flower.
