I’ve always thought of Hollyhocks as a bit of an old-fashioned flower, popular when I was young (a long time ago) and reminiscent to me of how gardens looked in the 1930’s and 40’s. Warm nostalgia runs through my mind whenever I see them.
Today’s rain reminded me that I had these photographs from Sweetman’s Garden in my files.
I am a grey haired wrinkler who lives in the North of Ontario in God's Country.
I get to look around me and take interest in things that I was always too busy to stop and investigate.
I make a lot of photographs of some of them.
Prints of any photograph published on photodyssey are available.
