Why Gladiolas are Special to Me by Lyn Cote

The photo above is meaningful to me because gladiolas in late summer bring back sweet memories of my mother. Her birthday was the first week of September. We lived at the edge of town with a farm across the road. They grew gladiolas and had a stand on the highway nearby every year. A dollar for a bunch of glads. My brother and I always saved our nickels and dimes and bought her a bouquet for her birthday. Her friends knew this and gave her the large glass vase in the photo to hold this yearly gift. Now do you have something such as gladiolas that bring back memories of a gift given or gift received? Please share.I really enjoyed hearing from you!--Lyn Cote

My latest romance is now on pre-order for 99 cents. It is book 4 in my 'Opposites Attract" series. Each story is connected but each is complete in itself. I rarely discount books other than the first in a series so this is your chance to get my latest for 1/4 the regular price!   Click here for more info.


  1. Beautiful memory, Lyn.I always try to keep some fresh flowers in my home, and recently planted a cutting garden. :)

  2. I remember my mom and my grandmother growing gladiolas. They are beautiful flowers. Off hand, I can't think of a special memory of a gift, but probably somewhere in the recesses of my mind there is one. :)
