Hello Heidi, I love your pink hollyhocks. My grandmother grew them along her fence and as a child I always admired them. I need to grow some don't I?

Pink Hollyhocks are lovely. This year I saw ones that were peach and called Peaches and Cream. There is something so regal about Hollyhocks.

Happy Pink Saturday,

Karen

My hollyhocks are a deep, deep purple, nearly black. Something must have happened to my pink ones because they didn't come up at all this year. Thanks so much for sharing!

I love old-fashioned flowers. The hollyhocks are lovely and the ones you photographed are well behaved. Mine bend and droop and look ungainly, but I keep trying :-). I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Aren't hollyhocks wonderful? As a little girl, my mother showed me how to turn the blossoms upside down and make them into a lady with a long skirt.

Beautiful!

Happy Pinks Saturday!

Pretty! I love Hollyhocks. I tried to grow some in my garden but I don't think they thrive in my zone. That's my excuse and i'm sticking to it. Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Busy weekend. Just now getting around to see all the wonderful pink. Beautiful hollyhocks. We have had such a cool summer that my hollyhocks have not opened yet, still at the bud stage. Hopefully they will open before the freeze comes. It was 39' last night.
ENJOY!
