I am quite pleased that my gladiolus are revealing their pretty pink selves out in my garden planter; you see I am not a champion gardener like my Mom, my sister, my mother-in-law, my sisters-in-law and pretty well all of my extended family, so I must celebrate the little victories. The tropicanas are also coming up but not sure if blooms will appear. This is my second year tending to the glads and the trops.
I am also tending to my orchids, there were lovely pink blooms this spring and now I am trying to revive them again. I am following The Daily Connoisseur's advice about watering and caring for orchids, so I will be thrilled if my efforts are rewarded.
