Happy Flower Friday!
Sue sent a lovely photo of one my favorites: the gladiola!
Sometimes I get my best ideas for you...my readers! After my zinnia post (and by the way, most of you agreed with me about the quilt pattern looked like a coneflower), Susan wrote this comment:
"I never remember coneflowers when I was growing up. I was an adult when I first saw them. Perhaps in the 1930s coneflower weren't widely known so the patterns were called zinnias."
Well that resonated with me. I had never seen the flowers either despite the passionate gardeners in my family. So when did this flower become popular?
