Seeds can surprise. . . . . . . . . especially after a couple of years since sowing
and nothing happening!
My wonderful blog friend Gina sent me seeds from her beautiful hollyhocks.
Only a few germinated last year but never grew more than a few inches before
disappearing into thin air, probably fried in our hot/humid weather.
Today, to welcome Summer, and to cheer me up - as I sit about the house and
garden trying hard to behave myself per my surgeon's post-op orders - shining
brightly is my first lovely hollyhock to bloom. All the way from Gina's fabulous Utah
garden surrounding her gorgeous farmland/country home, I now have one of her
flowers to love.
Thank you yet again dear Gina, here's hoping this one will self-seed!
If you aren't already following Gina be sure to pop over and visit this lovely
lady/ceramic artist/painter/traveler here at Art and Alfalfa - you will love everything she
shares from her beautiful corner of the country.
A very happy Summertime to each of you.
