For Valentine's Day, a couple of years ago, Lenny restocked our gladiolus collection with 160 bulbs! And he promised to plant them for me. Well, that last part got lost in his 80 hour work weeks so I did most of the planting that year. He did dig them up and this year, we did several staggered plantings together. Just a few of the dozens we have already had bloom this year are shown here. So maybe the best part isn't the blooms at all. It is when someone asks "Did you grow those?" I can say, "yes, We did."
