Water droplets on flowers always seem to give them a better appearance! This Gladiolus is lovely, too! :)

Thank you. This purlple one is amazing. When the flowers started to show up I thought they were black, but it came out with this surprisingly color. The seeds are huge. Right now learning how to reproduce it from seeds.
3:47am, by the way, couldn't sleep. Aging is so nice :)))

"3:47am, by the way, couldn't sleep. Aging is so nice :)))"

I can't say I agree with you in that respect, as I often wake around 3am & then I find it difficult to sleep again & when I do get back to sleep I wake up quite often before going back to sleep again. It can be 20 & 30 minutes sleep with a waking period sometimes the same but other times just a couple of minutes - or hours! :(

In a few months time I will start my 7th decade!

My dear friend,
Sometimes I wake, around 3, or 4, sometimes 2:30 and yes is difficult to sleep again. Too many thoughts, result of a long busy worker life, with too many responsabilities and troubled moments. It all come to my mind. But I try to rest, and calm down to sleep again, If don't suceed, I watch a movie, work on computer, have a snack with a cup of tea and enjoy this lovely silent place were I live now.
The wind on trees, some frogs chatting, an early rooster.
One year and half to the 7th decade myself ... yayyyyy
