Last summer I had a single hollyhock in my garden (picture top left), growing right in front of my kitchen window. It was in its third year, but last winter I lost it.
This year, I have the children. I’m very proud of them, although I think she might have been out and about a bit, as the family resemblance s is, well-not always there! What a flirt she must have been with those bumble bees.
