Hollyhocks Forever

In a recent afternoon spent exploring Marblehead, Massachusetts, we were delighted to stumble upon a home with a border of flowering hollyhocks which seemed to stretch on forever!

Don't you just love it when someone does something so beautiful with their home and/or landscaping that it just makes you smile? We were not the only ones who braked to photograph the hollyhocks.

"Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.
Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression;
some are pensive and diffident;
others again are plain, honest, and upright,
like, the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock."

--Henry Ward Beecher
