Hi Peacock Blue form Kyanite Blue!I too love hollyhocks, use to have many in my garden but the floods of last summer have sadly rotted their roots.
What a great H post! Love it!
I have so many favourites when it comes to flowers but Hollyhocks have always been in the top ten!
I love Hollyhocks. Your photos remind me of them when I had a garden growing up. They grew so tall and I was always amazed how they never broke no matter how windy it got! Beautiful.
The droplets of water adds such beauty to your picture.
Great choices for H! I loved Hollyhocks as a child. We made flower dolls out of them! It has been a long time since I have seen a hollyhock. Loved the droplets of water on the one.
I have always dearly loved hollyhocks.
WoW..some very beautifully captured shots...lovely!
I had these in my back garden for a number of years.. how much pleasure they give us. I put decking down where they were and give them away. Alas the did not survive.. what a crying shame that was.
I lived with Hollyhocks as a child, but it's much too windy and exposed for them here - a great shame.
I love hollyhocks....
My Grandma Smith had hollyhocks growing in her backyard and they always remind me of her. Beautiful flowers.
Have you read Thaxter's "An Island Garden"? It's a must read for flower lovers.

I always plant hollyhocks in honor of my grandmother that had them growing at the end of the garden by the alley. Such beautiful flowers.
