I haven't had much time for the garden recently. And today was no different. While I was in the vicinity of Santry Park, I went for a stroll towards the lake. I love this place, and to think it was only in the last few years that I discovered it was even there.

When I got home, it was too hot for gardening so I took a few photos instead and kept myself well-hydrated. Lovely to see my Hollyhock opening its first flower this year. And it's well-supported by my Taxus baccata. No need for staking.

Gorgeous photo of Santry Park and no sign of rust on that hollyhock, beautiful delicate colour.

I think I gave you one of those a few years ago, Jacinta. I that the same one?

Peter, I think the one you gave me was pink. It's not nearly as advanced as this one. But there are a lot of weeds around it and it seems to be struggling a little. Maybe I'll make time today.

Nice colour. I've a black one which is gorgeous but not open just yet.

It's my first year to have hollyhocks in the garden and I love them! Mine are a lovely soft yellow too.

I doubt that, Jacinta. Yours came from my first lot, and they were all white
