Wordless Wednesday - Gladiolus Bloom






This week's Wordless Wednesday is a bloom from one of our gladioli just as it was beginning to turm. For some reason I like flowers as they but ans as they decline, but then I am perverse.

Why do I feel that it's going to extend it's fangs in a minute? It is a lovely colour though.

I love glads. My grandfather used to bring home huge bunches of them, and put them in an old champagne chiller for my grandmother.

You visited my bookblog (Bibliotica), for which, thank you, and I hope you don't mind me returning the visit from my regular account.

I don't think it's perverse at all, however, when i look at this picture I see a throat and tonsils-but that could be because I have a cold!!

Happy WW

What a gorgeous shot of that gladiola!

C. R. Morris said...

Isn't it amazing how flowers can just look good all the time? I want to be a flower. I want people to take pictures of me and say, "OH..isn't it beautiful?" The color, the shadows even look good.. I don't wear shadows well..under my eyes. *sigh*

Rambler said...

nice pic...

Vixen said...

What a lovely glad it is!

Daisy said...

That is a beautiful photo. But I am just a tiny bit nervous that the flower looks like it wants to eat me all up. At least he only has three teeth.

TorAa said...

This WW, right?
Excuse me for writing ONE word: Impressed

julia said...

I actually said 'Oh boy!' out loud when your picture came up. Very dramatic.

jams o donnell said...

Great shot!

Sherry said...

Love the colors. You're really good.

crazy working mom said...

Beautifully done! :)
Thanks for stopping by.

meeyauw said...

perhaps you like it because there are millions of photos at their peak of beauty. but it is more difficult to do a great photo in decline. this is really great; love the black background.

jams o donnell said...

LOL ewvl, glad you like it!
