Hooked on Gladiolas!

Here are a few pics of some gladiolas blooming in my garden now. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I am enjoying the flowers. If anyone happens to know their names feel free to post it. Thank you!

Luvly!!! Thanks for sharing.

I loved the close up ones. Especially that white one, and I don't usually like white, but that was breath taking. So simple and beautiful it made me catch my breath! Mine where just planted two weeks ago. Our growing season will last until November. I hope mine are half as pretty as yours! I just planted about 100 corms. The white one should be printed and framed!
Lovely in deed!
I have had ONE glad for 3 years, and finally wised up and planted more! But this one was inspiring.

I am having such a great time. I look forward waking up early in the morning to see what has bloomed.

U're Welcome Dahlianut. Glad you are enjoying the pics.

Belledonna I love red and this gladiola last year helped my decision to plant more this year. I really love yours too. Do you have any other pics you can share?

Very Pretty Arlene, what is its name?

Belledonna the red with white edges is called Atom. I ordered that one from the DG Coops and so glad I did because I love it.

Oh Brother! You could easily get me hooked on another flower. All the Glads are beautiful and I want one like every one shown!

(Arlene) Lakeland, FL(Zone 9a)

Faye you are too cute! Well it is too late for me... run while you can. Hopefully by the spring you forget all about it. I am HOOKED! ^_^

Henderson, NC(Zone 7b)

Arlene, to be honest, I already love Glads. Last week end I helped clean furniture out a of a house that will be torn down, and in the yard where the birdbath had been , was a circle of Glads. Guess what! Someone pulled every one of them up, lol and I'm that someone. They are small and may be the roadside variety if there is such a thing, but they are still Glads and I'm glad I got them. Have no idea of the color but that doesn't matter . Yep, I'm already hooked. I love yours and if I ever see any like those you can bet that I will get them.

OK, Now where is the best place to buy Glads? Like yours!

(Arlene) Lakeland, FL(Zone 9a)

Hahahahaha! U are hysterical! Great finding...Was the birdbath in that deal too? I got them at the begining of Spring season so they were nice and fresh no matter where I bought them from. I got some in Wal-mart, Lowes, Home Depot and a coop they were running here in the spring. Atom-red I bought from the coop and I think one of the white ones too.

The one below is also in the gadiola family.
Peacock Orchid. I got this one from Wal-mart.

LOL, no, the birdbath was already gone. I will be on the lookout for Glads.
Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures.......I think!

Bernie those Glads are beautiful. Do you sell them? Why are so many picked?

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Yes, we sell them at the Farmers Market. We put them in bunches of 6. Last Saturday we sold 86 bunches. So that is 516 stems! My son does the bunching. He is just about done with that load in the picture.

(Arlene) Lakeland, FL(Zone 9a)

Faye at least they left you the glads. The birdbath would have been a plus. You're welcome. Next year we can drool over each other flowers. LOL!

Bernie that is awesome. I love that second picture. I would sit under that tree all day looking at those beautiful fields. Any chance you might recognize some of the flowers I have not been able to ID or might have given the wrong ID? Grealty appreciated.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Our field a while back.
We will check them out when we have time.

We have 12 to 15 thousand planted.
