This bashful soul, Gladiolus murielae commonly known as the Abyssinian gladiolus, holds its head in reverential contemplation.   Its light is beneath the bushel, peek beneath the snow white blooms and you will find an Ink Blot smudge of rich aubergine.  I can see two dancing ferrets, sipping Pina Coladas.  How about you?
