After my digging extravaganza yesterday, I had planned on taking it easy today. So, I was merrily reading one of my latest borrowings from the library at Harlow Carr when I remembered the gladioli bulbs in my downstairs cupboard.
To be honest with you, I think the bulbs are almost too pretty to plant. Look at the lovely satiny purple colour they are:
Nevertheless, the flowers they produce will look beautiful in the summer. And when I dig the bulbs up to avoid them being damaged by frost, I will get the joy of seeing them again, taking it they stay the same in appearance.
