Gladiolas are blooming, and i am glad. I love my glads, which do require the maintenance of digging up the corms in the fall and replanting them in the spring.
Gladness is one of the divine emotions, closely related to loving-kindness. Feeling glad to see a friend is a shout-out of love.
I'm glad to see my old friends, the gladiolas.
