Stunning! This is my favorite of the holly hocks.

The quotes are perfect.

The colors and textures are exquisite! I love the deep purple against the pale green. And I can feel the veins in the petals and the fuzz on the stems. So lifelike and the quote is perfect.

Gail, it is one of my favorites to. Let me know if you would like some seed from these, I have lots. :)

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your kind and uplifting words. Always so nice to see you.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. I think we were fortunate and missed all the bad weather. I'm sure we have more tornado weather to look forward to this year. :(

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

Ladycat, the colors are just so amazing on these hollyhocks. I could look at them all day. Maybe I need to rethink what my favorite color is? Maybe it is eggplant? lol I am always in awe when anything blooms and looks so beautiful... I was out taking pictures of all my blooming flowers yesterday, as I know fall is just around the bend. I will miss their beauty this coming winter.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

As always, thank you for your visit.
