Last year I planted Hollyhock seeds... I love hollyhocks - they are remind me of English cottage gardens.
Planting the seeds was a bit of a gamble for several reasons:
1. I'm not know for my plant tending abilities
2. It was a mixed bag of seeds and so I had no idea what colour the flowers would turn out to be (would be HUGELY disappointed if they turned out yellow) (not a big fan of yellow!)
3. We were only renting the property and so my little plants would have to survive in plant pots
but I was good - I watered them - I bought a little green house and put them in them in there - I kept them warm over the winter..
...and my efforts have been rewarded....
...drum roll please....
I grew this!! (ok, yes Mother Nature a bit to do with it too...) This is my hollyhock!! & ITS NOT YELLOW!!!!! woop woop!!! How beautiful is that colour! I can't tell you how excited I was when that came out!!
Its only a little plant but I'm very proud of it! and its got more buds coming...
OK, got to come back in from the garden - I've got rooms to sort out and crafting to do.
