I love hollyhocks and so does my neighbor. I have tried growing them in the past without success. Last year when I learned that my wonderful neighbor also likes hollyhocks, I ordered some seeds for her. This is the first result. I think they are so delicate and pretty.
Last night when walking in the neighborhood I gathered some hollyhock seeds from some plants that had gone to seed. I am going to let them sit on the windowsill until they age some more and then I will put them in a paper envelop until the time comes to plant them. The seeds on the left are from a pink flower and the others are from white flowers. I must try my luck at growing hollyhocks, again.
It would be so lovely to have a beautiful cottage garden, perhaps with some foxglove and hollyhocks!
Hans, the dog was seen by a very nice veterinarian and we will observe the dog and contact the vet if there are any further seizure issues. It may be a isolated case with no further problems. If anything occurs in the future, perhaps some testing will be ordered.
We, also, had an opportunity to go to the Boutique after having a very good Bar-b-que beef lunch at a newly reopened restaurant on our way. I am feeling very tired but all is good and I hope it stays that way.
