Raindrops on Jacob's Ladder


Some people have identified this flower as Jacob's Ladder. However, it doesn't look anything like the 20 or so different flowers called by the same name on the Internet!

This is an old-fashioned bulb that resembles a miniature gladiolus, and it spreads. Well, the flowers DO look like a ladder, especially in full bloom.

The shape of the blossoms and the colour are wonderful visual images.
PS. Haven't visited recently because I have a typical Minnesota summer cold with sleeplessness and lack of stamina--not much fun! Haven't been around much as a result! Have a good week-end!
