George's Hollyhocks











George lives opposite.  My bedroom window looks directly out onto his front garden.

How lucky am I?

  1. They're very beautiful. I can only admire them in pictures these days as we have far too many snails who think I've planted them just for them! xx

  2. I'd say you are very lucky indeed! Looks like you have a beautiful garden to look over and I love hollyhocks! Had them growing like weeds at our last place, but here I've tried growing them several times without success ........ yet!!!
    Hope you got the message to say I've crocheted up the sunday cowl

  3. I think it's quite inspiring, such a view! So beautiful!
    In Belgium we call this flower a 'stokroos', but I love the English name much better :-)

  5. Gorgeous pics. I can never manage to grow Hollyhocks, the one year I was successful they were the yukkiest orange colour not the lovely pink on the packet!
