When I see Hollyhocks growing, they bring back fond memories of my Great Grandmothers garden….found these in an old church yard in Keith, South Australia.

    Wonderful image, Lynda……. I too remember these while growing up…. they were planted under my mum’s kitchen window….. In the summer, while washing dishes, I would wait for the tops of the Hollyhocks to appear up to the window height…..I knew they would get that tall…. and they never disappointed!!!
    I remember they were in pastels shades…. your bright red is gorgeous!!!

  • Thankyou so kindly Brenda. My Great Grandmother lived in the adjoining house to my Grandparents, the home where my Mum grew up. There was a connecting gate in the yard, and as a young child it was like entering into a secret garden….fish ponds made of shells set in cement, a thatched greenhouse, rambling Morning Glory vine and of course Hollyhocks amongst other beautiful flowers…..pure magic!:-))
