WW: Red Hollyhock Flowers in Sunshine

"Freedom lies in being bold."
- Robert Frost

I knew I could count on my Wordless Wednesday friends to identify these boldly beautiful red flowers - within an hour of posting, I was told they were hollyhocks. The towering plant certainly stands out! I was walking to my car after dance class and was stopped in my tracks by the sunlight shining through the stalks in a stranger's yard.

  4. Very pretty and healthy too!! I would say Holly hock, I had them a few years ago and they tried to take over my garden. If you dont keep up on removing the seeds they go crazy!

  15. Beautiful! I love how proud and straight it stands. We all need to take a page from hollyhocks and recognize our own inner beauty, eh?
