These hollyhocks grow in my sister's garden. They were very wet for it had been raining all day. All the same I thought they were very pretty with all these raindrops!

So delicately touched with wetness, Reader Wil. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing, I don't think we get these kind of blooms in Puerto Rico. Lovely.<3

The hollyhocks are beautiful, I really like the pinks in that first photo. The raindrops are very pretty.

The hollyhocks are gorgeous. I used to grow a lot of different varieties that came back each year but for some reason they didn't return the past year or so. I guess I need to start some new ones next spring.

There is something about waterdrops and flowers.....

Flotte bilder - jeg elsker slike dråpe/blomst bilder, men det har du sikkert forstått! :)

How lovely! The only way MY flowers get wet is when I water them with the hose ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Hello, Wil! These are very lovely hollyhock blooms; thanks for sharing these photos. I've not planted any hollyhocks, but as I know that they will grow here, these photos have given me encouragement to do so.

Wishing you a happy week.

Seems perennials have come out for everybody in the northern hemisphere. I remember photographed the hollyhocks back in Taiwan in January's flower show!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful images. Your sister seems has a very beautiful garden.

Délicieuses rose trémières !Des photos sublimes.
C'est une fleur typique des charentes-Maritimes : connaissez-vous cette jolie région de France ?

Abe Lincoln said...

They are very pretty, Wil. I have some colors just like these. It is a kind of universal flower I guess.

Mine are nice this year as well.

Your visit will count and help me Make History.

Wil, your sprinkled Holihocks against the light are just a dream.

I adore Hollyhocks! Those are awesome! I bought several packs of seed on sale the other day and will plant it in the fall! I hope they come up and look half as beautiful as these!!
