I guess this is the week for flowers.
Today I had to take pictures of an old farmhouse, and it had several gardens full of the old-fashioned single hollyhocks. I really like them. In fact, I had some growing for a long time until I discovered that I had planted three favorite foods of the rose chafer beetles together. The hollyhocks didn't last more than a couple of years. So I really enjoyed these today.
They always grew alongside the house I grew up in, between the driveway and the wall. I suppose they seem like home to me.
