Majestic Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)

blooming Hollyhock

Hollyhock aspiring to touch the sky.

I was glad about the Hollyhocks when my first seeds took root.  But my patience was tested, it took years before any of these beauties attempted the summit to the sky. In the end I got the reward. The entire Hollyhock bed overflowed with 8 foot spires…

The plants were a love gift to someone who loves Hollyhocks. In hindsight leaving that garden where I planted them was hard, but only on a human level. My plants will come up even though my care cannot extend itself to them. The glory of their majestic endurance though many storms, is adorned by their humility. Their sweet climb litter the stalk. One by one, over and over until I couldn’t reach them with out a ladder.

It is a medicinal plant as a tea, for the throat and lungs I read… but to me their healing is in remembering to stand humble in all weathers with the single goal to meet the sun, our source of light. It is like a faint memory of something so utterly sweet and gentle that can never be forgotten. Like being wrapped in a soft blanket watching the midsummer sun disappear for awhile before returning without a night. I ponder this as spring is slowly melting the layers of snow outside my window. May Love be remembered…
