Play is the…

I love to play, and my favorite place to do research is the garden.  So I took a chance on a packet of hollyhock seeds, and my research paid off with the glorious beauty you see in this photo. I bought the seed packet for these hollyhock last fall, and it recommended that they be sown in the fall weeks before our first freeze. Unfortunately however it was already very close to our first average freeze actually, and as it turned out, our first one was our worst one for this past winter. But they had germinated by the time it came, and so I covered them hoping they would survive and they did. So it went every time is froze in what little winter we had that I would go out and cover the growing baby plants until the last freeze came at last. Thus I was rewarded with these beauties which are among my favorite flowers, and now I get to play with my camera and record the outcome of my research.
