That white Gladiolus, seen in the vegetable garden last year and this year chucked rather quickly into the big garden, has managed to bloom. Despite the late planting in heavy, soggy soil, several of the bulbs have managed to bloom. I didn’t think they would since I planted them in late June; I just hoped that by planting them, I would be able to save them for next year. So far, a nice yellow and the white. It would be wonderful if the crimson and rose would bloom as well; but the yellows are most probable given last years numbers. Still, who am I to complain about this!
