Susun & John's Straw Bale House beside Montezuma Well National Monument in Rimrock, Arizona
From Kirsty: "haha!! I loved it! Thank you for never failing to make me smile and happy! You are such an inspiration and wow, those hollyhocks! Could they be any more beautiful??!"Be sure to visit Kirsty's blog @ http://momedy.blogspot.com/ She's totally awesome!
Wow! I love Hollyhocks and These are the best-looking ones I've seen since we moved to Idaho. How do you do it? I planted seeds and the moment the heart-shaped leaves poked their sweet little heads above the ground, the local bunnies came and ate them all up!
DR & LBR Maggie sent her comment via email, "The hollyhocks look great and now I can picture them even better than before. Amazing!"
Our local bunnies vanished perhaps 80-100 years ago, perhaps longer. Luckily our fox squirrels don't like hollyhocks. Hollyhocks flourish in absence of predators. We actually use the hollyhocks to stabilize a problematic erosion problem in our yard. They do great for that.
Those are lovely. Out of the seeds Susun gave me so far only one thing looks to possibly be a hollyhock leaf but no flowers or stalks yet. Still, I'm told by folks in Boise they are difficult to get started from seed, but once they do, I'll be good as gold. Yours are lovely again.
Soooo CUUUTE!! I wonder if hollyhocks would grow in Kauai?
