Pink Hollyhocks

By pamelajean
Yet another photo of one of my hollyhocks, this time a pink one. What I like about this image is that each leaf seems to be sheltering each flowerSmile.

These stately towers of flowers have been reaching above my bungalow eaves for some years.
Its showy 3 funnel-shaped flowers are borne in tall, erect racemes and bloom for a long time in summer.

The epitome of cottage garden plants, the old-fashioned hollyhock adds drama and exciting height to any garden.

Thank you all for your response to my last upload of the Discovery Sculpture, and your continued interest in this sculpture series.

Pamela.

It's like a cascade of hollyhocks, from the top downwards. Lovely colours, details and a fitting background.

A rather formal but very attractive image, Pamela, which suits the plant very well. Beautiful detail and colour and background.
