Hollyhocks


I spotted these hollyhocks several weeks ago but I forgot all about them.  Since our heat wave has arrived (earlier than scheduled), I'm sure these beauties are long gone now.  I hope the people living on this street enjoyed them while they were blooming!  They really convey a cheerful feeling and we can certainly appreciate that right now.

Those are pretty flowers, I think you are right, the blooming must have gone by now.

Beautiful! The hollyhocks I planted last year have done nothing this season. I am mystified.

Wonderful flowers, in the right season, a lot of things will grow there.

They are such nice old fashioned flowers! My grandmother grew then all the time.

My mother used to raise them. I always liked to say the name.

That is a very unusual place to grow hollyhocks. We had many when I was growing up. They are so upright that my father placed them against a barn for support.

Flowers and baby animals are a balm these days. These are very pretty.

They certainly are pretty, how hot does it get there? hot enough for water restrictions?
