Hollyhocks .......




Ruby Red Hollyhocks with their feathery paper-thin petals
quivering in the morning breeze

I took this random pic looking over the fence
into some-one else's garden .... with a camera in my hand
I sometimes forget about boundaries!

What a fabulous colour. I would love to find an outfit in that colour to wear to my daughter's wedding!

beautiful - admire these tall growing flowers but never been able to grow them; either too hot, or too windy etc. Striking colour and would've been lovely to see them growing en masse

The photos are stunning, I only wish I was back in Adelaide to enjoy the beauty and warmth!

K now I have a question for you, do you have two blogs and spell your name with an extra n on one of them?

Dianne said...

darlin ... Yes I have 2 blogs but I spell them both with the double n for Dianne. My other site is "All Things French"

The color and texture are so beautiful. I haven't seen a hollyhock, it looks like a hibiscus. How long does the bloom last? thanks.

Hollyhocks are a cheery and proud flower. Great colour and translucency here Dianne. I'm with you - with camera in hand we also sometimes end up where we would not normally go. Mrs J got asked by officials whether she was part of the media when we were at a public ceremony recently.

Lovely colour on that one. I'm often seen hanging over fences with my camera too.

Wow very impressed with the hollyhock veins, what lens did you use on your CAnon?

Hollyhocks are so lovely and a bit vintage aren't they? I love having them in my garden... this bloom is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #59!
