gladiolus in autumn

Just one of the confused flowers in my garden this fall! I have lilies and dahlias that think it's spring, too!

I love your blooms. I had hyacinths which bloomed for a whole half day before the unusual frost came and froze all of it.

Pretty photo! Yes, it is good to have plants that prefer to flower late in the atumn even if they are confused. Here is Spring time :-)

Gladioles look very elegant, i think.
Daisys look friendly ;-)

Thank you for your lovely words :)
I feel a little bit like your pretty gladiolus when I think on Autumn in Spring :)...
It seems that nature is a little bit confused everywhere on the world.
Last Fall our flowers thought also it's Spring...My little, blue bell flowers were blooming to Christmas?!
Have a wonderful and good start into the next week :)

So many plants are totally confused and our birds are nesting although he weather is really cold now. My bulbs are up too and all my citruses have flowered.
No surprise your beautiful gladioli are blooming. My passionfruit vine, clematis and wisteria are flowering too. Nuts . . .
