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.
Quietly sitting in nature observing creatures great. . .
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.
