Guessing Game


Can anyone guess what seeds hubby planted in this little dish? He called me over and said LOOK!


I said; Did you stop and steal borrow pick a seed pod off the __________?


Bob said YES, I did...... do you know what they are? Not the rose moss below, think back a couple of weeks.... are you ready?


meet our Baby Hollyhocks..... Click on Hollyhocks up close and personal  if you have forgotten what they look like.

I

I AM THRILLED over these seedlings and over the big pot of moss rose that has a few blooms.

The Hollyhocks look terrific on the previous post. That is great when seeds germinate. I planted some spinach seeds and only one pushed its head out of the dirt. The moss roses look lovely too.

Rebecca said...

Hooray. A summer of pleasure in a dish.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Thanks for giving the answer cause I would not have guessed correctly and seems a bob can grow nearly anything.

Isn't it wonderful when lovely plants start to grow? Love that green!

Ahhh, that means they are soooo pretty. Don't want anyone to think I go around eating flowers! -chuckle-

There is a limit to my "Eating Green'. ,-)

Rose said...

I used to have some hollyhocks...wish I still did.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I would never have guessed. It seems like so many seedlings that come up often look the same at that point.

oh, good job, green-thumbed thief, bob! :)

Betty Manousos said...

Isn't Spring grand! To watch the progress of seeds and seedlings is to believe in God and the goodness of this earth!

SweetMarie said...

Those Hollyhocks are so beautiful! I want some in my yard. :) These have pods??

Ginny said...

These are beautiful and sweet, but to me I can't see how they are Hollyhocks. We have lots around here, and I also looked at your link with the pretty frilly ones. SO, are they a special miniature kind??? Are they tiny babies? I don't think they will grow bigger because with the big ones, they have to get real big to bloom...I need to know MORE!! I think I have seen similar flowers and did not know what they were...

Beautiful! I first thought "Magic Beans"!!

Betsy Adams said...

Your Bobby Appleseed is amazing, isn't he? You all will love your Hollyhocks... How special!!!!!!

Love the moss rose blooms also. NEAT!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Terri said...

I can't get anything to grow, so tell Bob I am jealous of his green thumb.

Madi and Mom said...

Holly Hocks...what a fun name to say. They are very pretty and Bob is a keeper.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Ann said...

Gotta love a man who will (steal, borrow) pick seed pods just so he can grow you pretty things :)

Eva Ason said...

They look really lovely, love the colours of the moss rose blooms.

When Bob plants a seed it will be sure to grow into an exceptional plant.He seems to have the magic touch,and I guess your warm weather doesn't hurt any either.

Maple Lane said...

I love both moss rose and hollyhocks!

LC said...

Bob's garden ventures and your madsnapping make a great and entertaining combo!

Miss Debbie said...

Way to go, Bob!! Container gardening is so much easier...can't wait to see the flowers!

SquirrelQueen said...

Alright, Bobby Appleseed strikes again. It is hard to tell what they are when they are that tiny. The Hollyhocks will be gorgeous when they grow up.

I have one of their more weedy relatives trying to take over my yard. It started out as a plant in the garden and now it wants to grow everywhere. If it was that pretty I might let it.

Gail said...

Beautiful.

I have much to pull and little to plant.

Susannah said...

Bob...what a great guy you are to be able to please your wife with the hollyhocks that she loved. Oh...I wish I had them growing in my yard. They are stunning. Gorgeous color.

As you know, I love the moss rose. I , for sure, will be growing them again this year. Everytime I looked at them, I thought of you, Sandra. This year, your color is outstanding. I wonder what color that is?

Chatty Crone said...

I would not have known but I planted some babies this year too! sandiae

Michaele said...

I just love seedlings. Seems most start out looking so much alike. I would have guessed that to be a herb.
