A gift from California

My friend Ysabeau sent me some holly hock seed from her garden more than a few years ago now.
They bloom every two years, and I have yet to gather more seed to fill in the alternate summers.
This is one of their on years, and they have survived my benign neglect one more time :-}

It looks like it's getting ready to throw a bud at you--here, catch!

Now that's interesting. Why every two years, I wonder. Beautiful anyway! Benign neglect is often the best way!

The first time I ever saw a hollyhock was when hubby and moved to Idaho; I was new from Hawai'i and I fell in love with them!
