Hidden Treasure

June 19, 2015

See those towering hollyhocks? I dreamed of those.

When I planted the package of seemingly insignificant seeds, I doubted my success. I thought about purchasing a potted hollyhock, but I wanted droves and droves, and a pot offered but one.

Last year, in late spring, I started the seeds in my vegetable garden. Once they sprouted, I transplanted them near the house allowing me to choose their location.

This year their beauty is definitely a dream come true.

I am continually amazed by the treasure hidden within an insignificant seed.

But, the seed without Earth’s energy would never bloom.

What a pair they make– seed and Earth’s energy– the force of our existence unassuming and hidden, yet visible.

and small,

Earth’s energy fills me, my spirit soars, and I bloom like the surrounding wildflowers– suddenly transformed from insignificant to significant.

Can you feel the beauty? Look around and within.

    Lovely pictures. The first year I planted hollyhocks they disappointed, the same with year tow, but year three!!!! Now they’re taking over. I LOVE them. The peacock reminded me that the other day I saw what appeared to be a white peacock at the edge of the woods. I wanted to catch it and bring it home but I was not quick enough getting out of the car.
