These gladioli were just waiting in the reduced bin at my local supermarket for me to pick them up and take them home. A couple of stems are a little battered, and they're more like Curly Wurlies than the straight stems they're supposed to be, but for £1.05 I'm not complaining. They're brightening the house up.
I've been enjoying these roses and iris's for quite a while. Roses don't seem to last very long in a vase, but a comment on a previous post from The Cookie Jar advised me to trim them and stand the stems in a cup of boiling water for a minute. It seems to have worked as the roses lasted far longer than the iris's.
I'd like to thank everyone for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog, I always appreciate them. As a thank you, and also because it's my second blog anniversary today, I'm going to be having a giveaway. I wasn't organised enough to have a giveaway ready for the date of my first blog anniversary, and true to form, I haven't got myself organised again this time. Keep checking back as a giveaway will be coming soon.
Thanks again to everyone for your continued visits and support.
