This lovely, delicately pink gladiolus was found in a good friend’s garden. It was already starting to lose its blooms, so she graciously cut it for me so I could photograph it. I like these flowers, (my mother did not, finding them too funereal, which given where you often see them, I can understand) but I really did not know much about them. What I did take away from my reading was that they symbolize remembrance and integrity. Given that Roman gladiators supposedly wore them around their necks for protection, I found that quite interesting.
