Hollyhock Flowers date back to the Middle Ages with their longevity being that they are able to thrive in almost any climate and soil, as long as they get full sun to grow. Kathy Archambeau has a beautiful garden of Hollyhocks alongside her home. They come in a variety of colors, including the white, pink and deep red in Kathy’s photos. Hollyhocks produce many seeds on each stalk of the plant and will drop them when dried, making a new batch of flowers for the next year. They grow so tall, that they often need to be staked or tied back, so they don’t end up fallen over. These colorful flowers have so many uses, including attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Something I learned recently is that the leaves, roots, flowers and seeds can be eaten in small quantities and have medicinal qualities to sooth gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary systems. It can be used in cough syrups and also will help improve circulatory health, but you best know what you’re doing ingesting them.

Keeping with our flower and nature theme, we have 20 seconds of Catbird Enunciating from Steve Brimm over at Steve Brimm Photography. Enjoy this otherworldly beauty and calm to end your week with.

Gorgeous shots, cousin. I love Holly hocks
but I got tired of tying them up. I guess
now that I'm retired I have no excuse other
than it's hard to find places to plant them
in this yard.

I loved the video. It was nice and calming.

The Apache never quite understood why much of our Buresu of Land Management and Forest Service Land could not be returned to it's original owners. There is firm evidence that they would do a better job managing it.
