Macro Monday: Hollyhock

My Mother grows really pretty Hollyhocks, I have never had much luck with them here in the woods. Hollyhocks are what I call "Old Fashioned " flowers..check out more macros at Sunday Stills Macro Monday:)

  4. I like the transparency of the flower, the light coming through makes it look like tissue paper.

  6. I have a purple hollyhock bush and I love it. I guess it is a little old fashioned or maybe more a tradition. My grandmother had them and so did my mother. I had to continue. Your photos is lovely. You really captured the color perfectly.

  14. I've always loved hollyhocks. I had some in Ohio many, many years ago. I'm going to try to grow some next year here in KS ... I found some old hollyhock seeds when we cleaning out an attached shed area to the garage, last weekend. Hubby said they are from his mom's hollyhocks (she passed away before I met hubby). Wonder if they will still grow?!
