Have you done this?

I’m back.

I’ve been sooooo busy.

I’ve been busy with…
a box of Kleenex
a bottle of cough syrup
lots of water…
and my bed.

I had a nifty little summer cold that knocked me down for several days…
…but I’m back!

Today for Outdoor Wednesday I am going to show a few pics of gladiolas in my garden.
I think they are so beautiful, especially when bunched together.

The colors are always so bright.
Now, only if I could find all the glads in my gardens…
Oh, here’s a few...

...and I LOVE this pink one.
Where are all of my glads? I plant hundreds of them...
I space them out, and plant them every two weeks...
for constant blooms.

Where are they???????

WHAT is that growing out of the Pepsi crate?
Over there, under the bench...
do you see it?
It can't be...

It is...
Here are my glads...
don't they look lovely?
How in the heck did I NOT plant all of my glads?
How did I NOT notice they weren't growing in the gardens?
Please tell me I'm not the only one that has done this!?!?!
For more Outdoor Wednesday, head over to Susan's
