There is something that I really love about hollyhocks. I love the way they stand up tall and reach for the sky. I love how they look great just growing wild and free without needing to be tended. I adore their bumpy round seed pods and how they look beautiful fully open or fully closed in a bud. I love watching big fat bumblebees bury down into the center of these beauties and be so busy gathering up pollen that they don't notice or bother you. I would love to have an old farmhouse with a white picket fence with lots of these growing helter-skelter against it. Oh yes, I love how you can save your seeds and share with friends.
The above photo reminds me of an old-fashioned seed packet!
I added some texture to the photo above and I think it looks like an antique postcard image!
This last photo is just so vibrant and pretty! Enjoy!
The three great loves of my life are,my friend and Savior Jesus, my husband and my four children. Ever since I was a tiny girl with strawberry blond hair and a nose covered with freckles, I have been creating beauty with my own hands. I have been blessed with an artistic eye and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty in my search for unique and beautiful treasures. I can often be spotted about town wearing a slight dusting of glitter and a few burns on my fingertips from my glue gun.
