Sunday in Iowa...

Hollyhocks and day lilies on the edge of an old farmstead south of Bladensburg, Iowa
Our folks, as many used to, always had hollyhocks in our yard.  They are self-seeding.


  1. I've always loved hollyhocks, but not had any luck growing them. I do have a black thumb when it comes to flowers. :o(

  2. At my grandparents place in Milo Iowa, my grandmother used to grow these in her garden. When ever I see hollyhocks I always think of her.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
