Colour Amid the Cold

img_0901-copy

Even the coldest summer in 32+ years of having lived in Papatowai could not deter the

glorious gladioli from blooming. Leaving them where they were, however, was to have them

battered by wind and rain so I donned wet weather gear and brought the spikes inside to light

up the living room. A visitor commented that ‘glads’ are now considered a ‘rather old-fashioned’

flower! Perhaps they are and perhaps that makes me old-fashioned, too!
