      Thank you so very much! We really did enjoy the gladiolus this year. We have so many dragonflies around here, and I think they are always looking for a photo opportunity! They are so much fun to watch! Thank you for stopping by, and I’m so happy you enjoyed them! πŸ˜ƒ

    Just beautiful! Do they cross pollinate?

      Thank you so much Dwight! You know I’m not sure about the cross pollination with these. This was a gladiolus mixture that I put out in early spring, but it will definitely be interesting to see what the blooms do next year! πŸ˜ƒ

        It is interesting to watch. I see it happening with my zinnias. The come up with some odd mutations as well. Marigolds do the same.

        That is so interesting! I do have zinnias and marigolds too in different varieties. I love the way some plants are such a suprise when they bloom. I will definitely be watching those and would love to see what happens. πŸ˜ƒ

        Save the dried seeds and replant them next year and watch what happens.
