Hollyhocks at Sheet

The variety of colours
Growing along the side of an old stone wall
Tall flowers in the hot sun
 Every year these self-seeded hollyhocks grow against a tall, long wall by the side of the road in the village of Sheet. This traditional English country cottage plant must be hardy, there's no visible soil here, nor have they had any rain for months. I don't think they look quite as tall and strong this year as in previous years but they still give a lovely view to the houses opposite them.

I took these pictures on the way home from Handmade Happiness after another day when the electric fan ran all day. Heat yes please. Humidity no thank you. Enjoy your weekend!
