TODAY’s BEAUTY… GLADIOLI

Gladiolus flowers bloom on a long spike that ranges from 2 to 4 feet tall. These beauties open from the bottom and work their way upwards creating a long spire of blooms. The grass-like foliage resembles the blade of a sword giving these flowers a reputation as sword flowers. The blooms range in colour from bold orange and red to pastel blues, pinks and yellows, lilacs, whites and purple. The gladiolus flower symbolises honour and remembrance, but it has other meanings too. It can also symbolise the following: • Strength of character • Faithfulness, sincerity and integrity • Infatuation • Never giving up Purple, specifically means: Charm, grace and mysteriousness.

BEAUTIFUL STRUCTURE… GLADIOLI

I love them ‘all-around’, the front, the back or profile! The gladiolus flower’s message may vary, but it will never be ignored. This bold beauty captures the heart and soul like no others with its impressive spire of flowers. Whether you choose a floral arrangement with similar coloured gladioli or you prefer a rainbow of colours to impress your love, there is a gladiolus for nearly every occasion. Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The colour purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.

BRAVADO in RED… GLADIOLI

https://youtu.be/QeB4-iBJLtg TATE MODERN EXHIBITION of GEORGIA O’KEEFFE. This is my tribute to this remarkable lady. I knew her landscapes and the portraits taken of her also by Ansel Adams, but was unaware of her flowers until about 6 years ago, when someone commenting on one of my flower photo’s that they reminded of O’Keefe’s flowers. Looking forward to viewing the exhibit, UNTIL 30 OCTOBER 2016 Have a creative day and thank you, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY MY IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

GLADIATOR’S SWORDS… GLADIOLI

GLADIATOR’S SWORDS… GLADIOLI Symbolism of the Gladiolus Flower Gladioli were considered the flower of the gladiators and have long been associated with swords. The legend goes that gladioluses grew from the swords of warriors held captive by the Romans. These stately flowers are used in floral displays at special celebrations and are a favourite in country gardens. They are considered old-fashioned flowers, as women everywhere often planted these flowers at the backs of their flower gardens to create a colourful backdrop to the flowerbed. They were also commonly planted along fences or the foundation of the home, as the tall spires need support to keep them upright as they tend to blow over in the wind.

OPPULENCE, GLADIOLI...

Gladiolus (from Latin, the diminutive of gladius, a sword) is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the iris family (Iridaceae). It is sometimes called the 'Sword lily', but usually by its generic name (plural gladioli). Came into the stdio, eager to photograph and was greated by these beauties. Love this, as sweet as candy?
