Hollyhocks

6.28 Hollyhocks 1


The hollyhocks I had nestled behind my pots of roses finally bloomed.

They don't grow as tall as the hollyhocks did at my old house. The blooms aren't as big either.

But I'll take what I can get.

Other garden updates.

1 year ago today, a mourning dove nested in my camellia bush.
2 years ago today, Cajun crawfish so spicy sweat will run down your face at Rockin' Crawfish - Westminster (Little Saigon).

  1. So pretty. My hollyhocks were totally wiped out this year from some type of rust! It's awful. I'm hoping to start fresh next year.

  2. I think the poor hollyhocks are just trying to find sunlight thru the roses- they are sun hogs and such happy looking plants. Changing gardens is tough- I will be sad when I have to leave this one. The neighbors tell me how much one of the prior tenants planted/loved certain of the plants and trees (mostly roses). It is an honor to carry on the garden.

  3. Pam,
    I got lots of seeds from these hollyhocks if you'd like some.

    H,
    My garden actually gets a lot of direct sunlight. I think the poor things need real soil instead of little pots. I still think about my old garden a lot! :(

    Nikki,
    :)
