flowering this week

strange black hollyhocks, deep pink cosmos, bright orange marigolds and tomatoes in the hanging basket!


  1. oooo, I love those black holy hocks,, the only black flower I've grown were black tulips,, don't know why I was strangly drawn to them,, my mother thought them morbib!Lovely flowers,

  2. I actually expected them to be more of a dark maroon/purple colour - not as black as they've turned out. They're very strange and exotic-looking among my cottage garden flowers.
