Day 44: Gladioli

Another gladioli is flowering (at long last!) and if you look carefully, you can see that a yellow one will soon be in full flower. It took them long enough!


  1. Could you come over and snap mine for me please? I've been trying to get decent pics and failing dismally! ;o)

    1. What you can't see is my left hand holding the top of the flower to pull the plant straight and keep it still (it was a bit breezy when I took this), and my right hand holding a reflector to bounce the light back and reduce strong shadows on the right side of the flower. The camera was on a tripod and I used the timer function.

  2. Beautiful! Like the purple shades. Gladioli are one of my favourite flowers, it is my birth month flower.

  3. That is a particularly lovely shade.
