.............I went into the country garden. We mowed the lawn, probably for the last time this year. There where lots of leaves on the ground and the garden was in a coming- into-winter kind of state. But we also found this Gladiolus in bloom. Such a treat when we expected to make the garden ready for winter. I have seen Gladiolus blooming in the Autumn before, but not this late. I am not an expert, but the ones I have had has been typically summerflowers.
Now it is sitting comfortably on the mantelpiece for us to admire during the half-term holiday.
