It's been a while since I've photographed flowers, this beauty is almost in full bloom so I had to take a photo! It was pretty windy so she swayed in and out of focus but I still like the shots.
Gladiolus are called the sword lily, also here in Greece we had a bank robber named "the thief with the gladiolus" because he would hide his gun in the florist box with the gladiolus. That was in the early 70s and that sums up my knowledge about them!
Watch this, poor giant.
