Dein Garten?
Is that a little painting of a bridge a la monet, which you did and placed in your garden?
Gardens are balm for the soul are they not!?!!

Hi Beth, Yes I had an old metal patio tabletop laying around and painting a little Monet bridge on it.

I've never seen such gorgeous frilly hollyhocks! And I hope you are enjoying some sunny afternoons, too.

It's lovely, H. The whole scheme...but for whatever reason, I am especially pleased to see your hollyhocks doing so well. It's been ages since I had a garden of my own, but I remember struggling at times with the hollyhocks & finding it really crucial to have them. Perhaps reminding me of my grandmother (who had scads). Thank you for the peek.

Hollyhocks are so pretty. I used to pretend they were ladies in ballgowns when I was a girl.

the hollyhock look like camellias! I've never seen any like that. do you know what they're called...must be a hybrid.
