Hollyhock Dreams and Lilies in Glory


Hydrangea in shade of oak in back in bloom.

My shy Hydrangea in back has bloomed and has pretty blue and white flowers, as you can see above.  Lilies are also in glory, as seen in this Facebook gallery.

This week, I planted four Hollyhocks. I used to have pretty black Hollyhocks in back, but bunnies finally ate them all gone, sadly. These that I planted are yellow or white or red (Menard’s doesn’t distinguish colors). I planted one in the front wall garden and three plants in back.

I don’t know if they will bloom this year—many in town are in bloom already—but I hope the Hollyhock returns to my gardens. I miss them.
