  1. Not a fan? Wow, they were one of my favorites when I was a kid. They happen to be one of those flowers that look really good in white, although my colleague insists that they are funeral flowers.

      • Actually, many people find gladiolus to be boring or ‘simple’. I sort of like their simplicity. I just do not like allowing them to continue to bloom in the garden, as the lower florets shrivel while the upper florets are just beginning to bloom. I am glad that lilies do not remind me of funerals, since I happen to like them so much. I grew some of them back in 1986.
