This week I am adding buds to blooms to seeds!

hollyhock seed-heads dry and ready for harvest to share or add some to another part of your garden

What things are blooming or budding
in your yard and garden?
Are you enjoying this series, should I continue?

  3. This is the first year that I have planted hollyhocks. They look just like yours. I hope to have even more next year. Thanks for hosting and for the pic.

  4. Pretty, I really need to de-weed my garden, always right?!

  10. Hello, Faythe!! Good to see you back! Your hollyhocks are something else! Wow! I hope to link up soon!

  11. Hey Girlfriend! How ya doin? I have never seen a hollyhock before. Interesting. In fact, tell ya how dingy I am because I'm allergic to bees & so is my son I never had flowers on my property, but I have these beautiful orange flowers on in my backyard by my fence & hubby loves them too, so they're staying, but I wondered how they got there & my neighbor said, "Dam poopin' birds"! hahahahaha I didn't know that! LOL

  12. What a fantastic color the flowers are. Thank you for sharing.

  13. Great to see your flowers in bloom. Lovely color.

  14. These are lovely. I must try and grow some.

  15. How lovely I wished I had a garden :-)

  18. Seeds to plant unless the birds and squirrels get to them first! Pretty much everything is growing here now. We had lots of rain and sun, and are now in a real hot spell.

  19. I love the photo of the dried seeds.

  20. Please continue and continue!!


  21. Yes of course you should continue, your pictures are too good to miss out on my great friend :)

    You asked what was / is growing in my garden, well up until this evening there were some hefty looking prickles but I soon got rid of those, and braved being prickled too :) I used my bare hands to uproot them, but rather cunningly I pulled them out from the lower stem where the prickles are not so sharp :) lol

    How do you mean why didn't I use the Marigolds? :( Well I am not wearing those so hard lines ;) lmao

    Have a lovely evening Faythe :)
