Yesterday I had posted a shadow of a dried Hollyhock stock beside my garage. We have made it through the winter and now the season is on the brink of spring a time of and renewal of growth and new beginnings, I usually let the dried seeds disperse by themselves being scattered by the wind and birds , etc. Today I thought I would look a bit closer at the seed pod to see how they had over wintered..I love their textured appearance.These seed pods looked a bit tattered and worn but I found the seeds still intact inside. It is so amazing what seeds do when they are nourished by the earth and sunshine,What a wonderful potential treasure has been stored within. Soon!
