My Hollyhocks are finally blooming! I have liked hollyhocks ever since I was a little girl and my Grandma Mary had them, and we had some at home. I like the old fashioned kind, but this double bloom hollyhock is really pretty too. Whenever I look at them it reminds me of staying at my Grandpa & Grandma's house and going for walks with Grandma. She loved flowers, looking for rocks (one of my favorites also) and me! I bought a couple of quilting patterns for Hollyhock quilts that I am looking forward to making someday just because I like them so much.
