Look what I found!

Took a wander through the garden/backyard this evening to check everything out; things have been popping up around here since we’ve been having unseasonably mild nice rainy weather. It certainly has felt like spring, and the plants must think so too.  Look what I found popping up next to our fence.

It’s a hollyhock! I planted them from seed last summer, but it was so hot and dry here none of them came up or did much of anything.  And then I found this guy, one little leaf, right next to a pretty healthy looking hollyhock plant.  What promise a seed may hold!  Although I won’t count my hollyhocks before they bloom, who knows when crazy cold winter air might swoop down here and freeze it, and everything else that thinks it’s spring, to a crisp.
