First rank darlings are people but I don’t believe in putting pics of people on my blog. Call me old fashioned……like this rose. How lovely is that. I only planted it last fall and was sure the brutal winter would kill it but it is on it’s third blooming. I love the shape, like something out of a tapestry.
Next are nasturtiums. I never had any luck with them. All I ever produced were leaves, but look at these orange faces.
Last but far from least are my gladiolii. I never cared for these – reminded me of funerals but then my grandchildren gave me some bulbs for Mother’s Day and now I love them. They are very irritating in that they take the whole summer to bloom and I got very discouraged and never believed they would bloom. Perhaps I should take a lesson here. Not quite sure what it is…never mind . I revel in the color and the shape of these blooms going up the stem. I have a famous sunflower too. They are my darlings, really. If only they could kiss me with their petals it would be perfect.
Off to search for falling stars. I wonder if I will see any. I want them to show up tonight.
