Ruby Tuesday

On our way to the park with Jarome on Saturday I passed hollyhocks, flowers that I haven't seen in a long time.

Hollyhocks are beautiful flowers.
Our climate is too cold for them, but we grow them indoors. Living room plants, they are called.

I've always loved hollyhocks! I was entranced by the photo strip of Jarome at the park; but I'll come back to read it later because I'm working on battery here (stopped by the side of the road for lunch and to post my Ruby Tuesday -- all the necessities of life).
