Hollyhocks remind me of my grandmother's garden. She had lots of hollyhocks and foxglove flowers. I love that they are so tall (5 feet) and keep on blooming, surviving the wind and the rain. These are along my garage. They reseeded themselves and have required zero care. How great is that?
Yesterday, I hung some works at Emerson house, had to take Spike in for his shots, then drove 5 hours to Eagle River Wisconsin. I didn't have time to finish this painting. I have it packed with me and will post it when it's finished. In the meantime I'm hoping to get some great photos of Northern Wisconsin to paint.
