Best Shot Monday - Hollyhocks


I love hollyhocks. They are beautiful, tall flowers that come in amazing colors and seem to thrive on neglect (at least in my yard). They reseed and come up in all kind of places where you didn't really expect them to grow. They still look great after the rain.

This particular hollyhock was a real surprise for me since its color was so completely different from all the other hollyhocks I have in my yard. I was fascinated by its deep red, this absolutely amazing color.

You bet that I will keep those seeds!

Oh! This is a lovely picture...and what a beautiful color. I too love Hollyhocks - they usually bloom for me in early summer. You are right they certainly have a mind of their own and like to find new places to grow.(-:

Just lovely! I love the deep color. I've never grown Hollyhocks but maybe I should try. I'm not a great gardener and need hardy flowers that can take care of themselves :)
