Everything’s coming up . . . gladiolus

Grande Passion Gladiolus

Grande Passion Gladiolus

I realize this is not as colorful as my photos usually are.  I am so excited that these gladioli are sprouting!  I planted them March 19th of this year, on a day that my hands weren’t up to digging.  I ignored the part of the package that said to plant 9″ apart and 6″ deep.  Instead I chose to believe the part of the package that said “You can grow armloads of flowers in a small space”.  I dug a single hole about 3″ or 4″ deep, planted all 20 corms, pushed the displaced soil back into the hole, covered it up in leaves to make up for not planting them deep enough, then figured they’d never grow.  Wrong!  I am now expecting a vibrant magenta when they bloom!
