Hollyhocks grow in front of my house.
Along the porch railing are 3 different shades of pink Hollyhocks.
They are standing about 7 feet tall so far.
To the left, along the brick wall are white ones and some pale pink.
They are about 9 feet tall! They have a long ways to bloom yet. Does anyone remember making flower dolls out of the Hollyhock blooms as a child?
Dancing Hollyhock doll.
Pick a pretty opened flower for a skirt and a flower bud for the head. Peel away the green outer covering on the bud. Push the small stem of the opened flower into the base of the bud's folded petals. You can push little sticks in for arms. Place her on water and watch her dance!
