An old-fashioned flower that reseeds itself in some of the most delightful places...and sometimes not. This plant is in a great spot.
The bud below the three blossoms shows you how this flower got it's name.
I don't think it's possible to plant too many of these! They bloom for a long period and insects LOVE them for their nectar, especially butterflies.

Such delicate colours!
Nice photos Camera Girl. It is that time of year when we get flowers in bloom everywhere.
Marvelous photos of very pretty flowers. The balloon flower is one I love for its interesting design and how it starts out as a 'balloon '.
I love the colour of the hollyhocks.
A beautiful selection from your garden. I am smiling! :D
So much fun to photograph these. They're just so interesting and colorful.
Gorgeous blooms and lovely images! Have a happy day and new week ahead!
Great shots of the beautiful flowers.
The blooms are lovely, must get out and take some photos of mine.
Beautiful flowers today! Hollyhocks are a favorite and your portrait of them is wonderful.
The second one is my favorite!
Now I want to plant Purple Coneflowers and I love your Hollyhocks, those I have but in deep red. Hug B
Oh, wow, EG. Great shots...I love hollyhocks and don't have any any more.
Ah, such beautiful, colorful flowers and terrific pics as always! I do love the detail you that you always capture!! What a great way to start my day!! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!!
Three of my favorite flowers blooming now here too!
How lovely, EG!
So beautiful these blooms. Have a great week ahead.
Lovely photos! Flowers always make me smile.
Hollyhocks are a traditional flower around here.
Is it too simplistic to say they are all so pretty and the photos are gorgeous?
The first photo reminds me of my sister's parasol, from years ago.
Have a Great Week!
Your flower images are stunning!
I love the hollyhocks, we have them in NZ too.
Beautiful! The Hollyhocks have been a favourite for many years,of course the Coneflower is right up there near the top of the favourites list as well.
All three are good, but for me, the hollyhocks were the ones that jumped out at me.
All the best!
Lovely pics. I tried planting Hollyhock but unsuccessful
Hollyhocks (and especially pink ones) and coneflowers are among my favorites. I don't think I've ever seen balloon flowers but I love the blue color. Just seeing these beautiful photos makes me want to plant a new garden!
Beautiful capture on the colourful flowers! Love the cool balloon flower
Nice flowers, and I agree about echinacea.
I tryed to think of a word that i have not used before, i know you get sick of hearing stunning, amazing, awesome so here is Phenomenal and that first one is a perfect match to Flamingo Pink
Such pretty colours, EG!
They are all so pretty but my favourite is the hollyhocks macro!
Those hollyhocks are beautiful! I really wish mine hadn't died out (okay, goats may have eaten them).
I have two out of three of these growing in my garden (no hollyhocks, sadly). I love your macro of the hollyhocks. You can see all the delicate pollen.
Gorgeous flowers! I love the coneflowers.
