Macro flowers: Hollyhocks

I have joined this meme for a while now, and I am loving it. First I love flowers. Second, the badge for this meme is the North Borneo Orchid.

Join Macro Flowers Saturday, a photo meme for macro photos and close-ups of flowers, garden flowers, wildflowers, blossoms, flowers with insects and butterflies (no insects without flowers), flowers with raindrops and whatever beautiful plants, plant seeds or berries you have, in close-up.

First time visitors, please read the rules. They are simple but I do ask that you, please, use a MFS badge or link back to MFS in some way. Thank you.

Macro Flower Saturday
Bluberry craft and hobby time

It is summer here in New Zealand. Hollyhocks are blooming. The darker color bloom was actually darker than the photo.

I was at the breast cancer centre for my mammogram. The garden had many beautiful flowers.

I love hollyhock and this here, in your macro has a fantastic color.
But I don't like what you are saying at the end of your post. Please let me know the result.

I love hollyhocks, since I have been taking so many photos! I have never planted them, though!
You ask whether the cow parsnip is the same as Queen Anne's lace, and no, it is not. Same family, though. QAL flowers close up into a bird nest sort of shape, while the cow parsnip stays splayed out all winter.

Hollyhocks are one of my favorite flowers. These are very beautiful.
