Many thanks to all of you for your beautiful contributions to this meme.
These lovely pink hollyhock flowers are my contribution for today.
The old-fashioned Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) are one of the oldest flowers known.
It's a stunning sight to see their beautiful blooms in a summer landscape.
Esteemed as a colorful cottage plant, the hollyhock is a visual delight wherever it is planted, at the front door, the garden gate, backyard garden, along the fence or just by the border of the sidewalk like these ones.
Hollyhock flowers are an irresistible source of inspiration for painters of all times, including myself.
See my hollyhock painting at this link if you wish and have the time.
