I made a trip to the farm stand over the weekend.
I love their homegrown bouquets of flowers,
as well as the ripe and juicy fruits and veggies.
I was particularly excited to find these beautiful Gladiolas.
Earlier in my florist days they were mostly used as funeral flowers,
or in church basket arrangements.
And, they were usually white or yellow.
I have always loved the complexity of their blossoms.
I was tickled pink to find them in purple.
I had never seen that color.
They opened overnight to a beautiful bouquet!
