Almost at the End.............

The hollyhocks are almost over for this year.  These poor, neglected flowers with their happy faces have graced alleys and fences and forgotten corners and they've given their stately joy to a hopelessly hot summer.  How can you look at a hollyhock and not be a little happier?                       Diane

I love Hollyhocks.Unfortunately mine have not bloomed this year. It has been too hot and dry,I think.

I love hollyhocks Diane, mine didn't grow this year. I have miniature hollyhocks that did quite well considering the lack of rain and terrible heat. I love how you word things, so beautiful!
