Blue Monday: Glad

Haiku: Glad

Glad am I for these
Gladioli in soft hues
Of blues like the sky

  1. Hello Sarah, Thank you for your sweet comment on my post. It is so sad that we do lived in a troubled world. I pray for change for the better.

    Your flowers are beautiful in blue. I appreciate you joining in Blue Monday so faithfully.
    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs.
    Jeanne

    • It would be a wonderful thing to see peace in our lifetime but I often take myself away from the troubled news stories, from close to home or around the world, and focus on all the positive stories and wonderful people that I know. I really love being part of Blue Monday as it brings so much joy to people πŸ™‚ We all need a bit of colour and beauty in our lives!

    • Thanks Pete πŸ™‚ Yes it was a delightful sight! Part of a display from one of my favourite producers at Wisley Flower Show last weekend. I have some more to come from them too πŸ™‚ Specialists in dahlia and gladioli, they always bring the most joyful blooms to the show!

      • Whereabouts are you based? I don’t really get to the other RHS gardens as the distance is too much but I think Sue and I are quite blessed with the number of wonderful gardens and landscaped grounds in our area. The Surrey Hills are a wonderful place to go too!

      • I’m in the north east of England so choice in RHS is limited but there are plenty of other gardens around. It’s been a great summer for garden visits. (my husband designs them for a living so it’s a working hobby πŸ™‚ )

      • Ah yes, your closest one would be Harlow! A new one is on it’s way for 2019 but in Salford so probably still a fair distance from you. Summer blooms really have been good this year πŸ™‚ My hubby was married to a landscape designer who passed away 10yrs ago! He still has some of her original sketches. He loves coming out to Wisley and other gardens with me but is completely immune to learning anything about plants and wildlife πŸ˜‰ He just knows what he likes even if he doesn’t know it’s name!

      • You see- me and mine are the complete reverse! I might know a plant name one second and have forgotten it the next. Doesn’t make it any less beautiful. We have lots of thingummy plants πŸ™‚
