The garden news, July 12

This week, the garden is all about the gladiolus. I have two kinds, miniature pink ones

and bloomed

and large cream ones with pink tips

which bloomed and were beaten down by the rain

and were therefore cut and put on display in my bedroom

where they are breathtaking. Seriously, these glads are as tall as I am. They are going on the list of things to stake, next year, along with the foxglove.

For good photographing, though, nothing beats the achillea right now. Yum.
