Glad August Memory 

The Gladiolus

Grew near my bedroom window

Colorful sword flower


The small house I grew up in as a child was bordered on one side with gladiolus and hollyhock planted by my mother.

My Mother was born on August 25th. She loved Gladiolus and

Gladiolus is the birth flower for August.

It’s lovely to remember looking out my bedroom window and viewing many colors of tall gladiolus and hollyhocks.

Such a nice memory to recall as I begin the month of August 🙂



A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now calls it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.
