The white gladiolus
opens in the summer sun,
a radiant bride.

a whole new perspective on the gladiolus. my daughter is a 'florist' and here and to her, the glad is a funeral flower and not much of a welcome sight.

thanks for showing us the beauty!

Michelle said...

Thank you, Angie.

And, of course, thank you, Fiona.

I like the way there might be a real flesh and blood bride, or maybe just the flower itself.
