A couple of years ago I planted six hollyhock seedlings.
I watered them and fed them and before long they were taller than me.
They were very well behaved and I thought they were quite pretty.
The next spring I saw little leaves poking up out of the ground where the hollyhocks had
been the year before. How great! They've come back and they've brought
some friends with them!
I saw another plant coming up clear across the driveway and lawn.
And a few more here and there in odd places.
The flowers were several shades of pink and burgundy.
And a few double white ruffly ones.
I still think they're so pretty. But they're not very well behaved.
Obviously they love to party!
So perfect for a cottage garden.
