HollyGoLightly Hock ...

This is the hollyhock I planted in my garden. I'm sure I have mentioned before what an absolute kick it is to be gardening in Zone 3 for the first time in my life. I pulled the botanical drawing from Wickipedia. Look how the leaves match exactly.

Yesterday I went garage sale hopping with Mom and Catherine. I bought a milk can for $5 that might have something to do with the base of our mailbox which needs replacing. I also bought a mosquito frying bug light for $2.50 and a pair of JCrew black flip flops that have never been worn for 50 cents. Ruby stole last year's pair and only one has surfaced. And those rubber gardening gloves ... she loves those too.

As we speak, Cat and Jessie are putting in the bathroom and closet floors downstairs. He gave us the "Family Discount". Like I said, I love my life.

  1. How lovely. I adore hollyhocks. Remember them growing in odd corners, near concrete - they seem to life poor soil. In the south of France tho I've had no luck with them. Not sure why.

    Apologies for lack of comments recently. I'm in America. But slowly, hope to start commenting a little more regularly.
