Secret gardeners up and about...

Each year I am so charmed by these vibrant, colorful hollyhocks in the middle of my hometown. They accompany me when I walk to the shops. I have asked the official gardeners whether they had planted them but they negated. They assume that someone had scattered seeds secretly and now these beauties grow year after year. I have picked seeds of them and planted them in pots. In fact they are growing and making leaves but no flowers have appeared so far.  I even talk to them but it does not help. Someone just told me that the flowers grow only the second year after planting. So there is still hope!!!

Are there any secret gardeners about where you live?

Happy flowery Friday!
