Fresh Cut Friday: Gladiolus

Photobucket


I know, I know....I am late to the Fresh Cut Friday Party Liz is hosting @ Rose Vignettes, but we were our of town, so I waited until today to post.

The flower of the month is gladiola, and Liz wrote an impressive post about this flower.  I enjoyed reading it, and you will, too!

Gladiola are expensive around here, so I bought three coral gladiolus stems and mixed them with less expensive pink carnations and alstroemeria.

I mixed the coral and pink to match the table runner I bought on sale at Pier1 ($9.98, originally $34.95).  Score!

Please visit Liz @ Rose Vignettes for some pretty flower arrangements.

Until next time...

  7. Sweet! I love your bargain runner. Isn't that funny! I thought that they were kind of pricey to. $3.50 a stem... and that is in season. They did last a long time though... I'm so glad you were able to join in. :) I love your posts. :)

    Have a great week!
