Gladiolas in Our Garden

This is one of my favorite flowers in our garden. These are called gladiolas, also gladiolus, gladioli (plural) or sometimes called the sword lily. I hope to see these flowers again next year.

Have a lovely week to all and a happy and safe celebration of Thanksgiving to our American friends!

Your gladiolas are gorgeous! I have never heard the name Sword Lily before and enjoyed learning it. Thank you also for your Thanksgiving greetings. I hope you have a wonderful week.

"Sword lily"--that's a name I've never heard before!


Whenas in red my Julia’s clad,
Then, then (methinks) she’s wicked bad—
Like Hester Prynne, but not so sad.

Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
Those crimson skirts flow full and free,
Her sweet seductions taketh me!

(With apologies to Robert Herrick, 1591-1674)
