Another Floral Surprise: A Shy Little Hollyhock

This afternoon I wanted to give my gardener some instructions, so I went into the yard to show him which shrubs I wanted him to trim. As I  was pointing out a juniper, I saw this little hollyhock hiding behind the hyssop. I had never even suspected it was there. It's a flower God planted. I have read that they grow like weeds, but I don't mind. I welcome their cheerful little faces when they show themselves. I wish all "weeds" were as beautiful.


 Now it's time for tea.
