This poor glad is leaning on top of a nearby day lily. These purple glads have come up every year for the last four years. Now I ask myself: why purple?
If you like to see gorgeous bulbs, go to the website for American Meadows. This pretty pink glad came from their catalog.
American Meadows also has a Biltmore Collection, featuring varieties grown at the Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina. The next two photos are from that collection. These didn't bloom last year at all. In fact I had forgotten all about them until I saw them blooming a few weeks ago.
It pays to walk around my yard every day. I never know what I might find!
