Hollyhocks are biennial, which means I had to plant these beauties in the spring of LAST year so I could enjoy them THIS summer.
Last year—all summer long—I cared for my sad, scrubby little plants. They looked more like weeds than anything else. I had no idea what color flowers I’d get, or if they’d survive a Michigan winter. But here they are! I’m quite pleased with how lovely they look.
I’m not a patient person. I want everything to go the way that I want, NOW! LOL Occasionally, I needed a gentle reminder that sometimes it’s also good to wait, to allow things to unfold in their own time and in their own way.
