Some Hollyhocks

They've begun to bloom

In pinks & Reds

Whites are lovely too

Some are singles & some are like roses

Even powder puff looking

Here's my only surviving FoxGlove. Mother Nature played tricks on the others and SHE won.

I love Hollyhocks in a cottage garden. Plant them EVERY year for continual blooms.
Hollhocks are a biennial~You can plant the seeds in Autumn or Spring. The first year you get foliage, the next year, blooms..then they are done.
If anyone wants seeds this Autumn, just email me from my Profile Page & I'll be happy to share. **I'll mail
them to you as they go to seed, with instructions for planting**

HI Deena,
wow, you hollyhocks and so
beautiful, and you have such
lovely colors, do you have
foxglove, too?? Oh, I would
adore to have some seeds!
And I love paper face creation, too!
If we lived closer I could chase away any snakes for you...LOL

I love your hollyhocks. I have tried again and again to grow them here but they never seems to take, too many slugs and snails maybe. The colours are beautiful. I will enjoy looking at yours.

Oh I can't wait for mine to bloom now. They are my husband's favorites...they do remind me of a little cottage in the woods, and bumblebees and little birds. I love your one foxglove, too! It is rather regal all by itself, isn't it?! Happy Gardening!

Dear Deena,

Got your link from Bliss Guild, and I have to say a big, big thank you for the lovely pics of the hollyhocks and foxglove! I am relishing the images as I'm the teensiest bit jealous of your success with these... I planted seeds but no harvest because of a severe drought where we are! Thanks much for the pics... LOVE your blog!
