Brian brought these home for me yesterday, along with a new electric toothbrush. Mmmmmm! That being said, we both love gladiolas and they actually always make me think of my older brother, Greg, who died 7 years ago. Could it really be 7 years already? Greg use to bring me gladiolas as soon as they came in season. Funny how I just thought of him last week when I first saw them in the stores and then again last night, when Brian walked up the stairs with these pretty flowers.
