Reach for the sky
Let nothing stop you
Bloom and grow in the sunshine
My hollyhock is 12 feet tall
It is reaching
It has problems,
but still keeps growing
Reach no matter what

The August Break

If I had gorgeous hollyhocks like these I would not need ice cream!
It's obvious to me.

Ohhhh, these flowers always remind me of my nana and the illustrated English childrens books my mom used to read to us.

Your hollyhock is gorgeous! I can't believe how tall it is! What have you been feeding it?

Oh, my hollyhocks never bloomed in the Georgia heat this year, so I am especially happy to see yours!
