Just as the spring flowers in the desert are enjoyed by the opportunistic
The window of opportunities can often be fleeting.
(A thought this morning when I think back of hiking on Sunday out in the Superstition mountains)
When I used to see Hollyhocks in gardens I visited I always felt them to be carefree, take me as I am kind of flower. I enjoyed their vibrant personalities and planned one day to enjoy their company in my own yard. Well consistent with my gardening trials and errors I found last spring that out of one package of seeds that I attempted to grow I had one beautiful plant that agreed to stay with me in a simple 5 gallon Lowes Hardware bucket. I has flowered through the winter and now come march still at it. I dare not transplant it ( this advice I got from one of my helpful fellow gardeners on my Maricopa gardening group. Now the great news….. I have other hollyhocks that are now itching to flower in big planter and in ground in other areas of property. Maybe I am onto something … I think the lama dung is helping 🙂
