Hollyhocks belong to my favorite flowers. They are happy, remind me of English cottage gardens and they thrive on neglect. They self-seed, so if you have them in your garden once you will probably have them for quite a while.
This partucular hollyhock stood at the front door of our old house. I had brought the seeds from a friend's garden in Germany and they took off here. I've saved the seeds so I can have them here at our new home as well.
For processing - I used one of Kim Klassen's textures - and unfortunately I haven't kept the recipe (usually I do) and am not quite sure anymore which one I used - I think it is "warmsun". I layered it twice, once at soft light 100%, but I forget what I did the second time. My apologies.
