The hollyhocks are really starting to bloom now..especially with our warm weather...its been in the low 100s for the last two days.....I took this photo yesterday.....
and this just a few moments ago

There is a white one opening too
These plants might have done well there as its right next to the sprinkler lines and gets plenty of morning sun and afternoon shade...I hope to collect the seeds, give a few away, and try to plant more on the other end of this fence to balance it. We've only been in this house for a little over 3 years so there is still things we want to plant, etc...I've been trying to talk Alan into building some square foot gardening boxes and letting some of the lawn go...but so far its no. He does like to grow vegetables though so perhaps one day....all the lawn really eats up our water bill.
