sequin


The first of the New Mexican hollyhocks, sent here in disguise as sequins, has flowered.  Perhaps the high temperatures - over 30 degrees C here today - are fooling it into thinking it's still in Albuquerque.

It's a very fine hollyhock indeed and I hope it's enjoying breathing the Isle of Dogs air, just as Jeanette imagined.

Hi,

I love this beautiful New Mexican hollyhocks. I’d love one of these to grace my garden. Maybe next year!

I’ve written an article titled ‘Poisonous plants found near you’ which I thought you might be interested in:

If you know of any poisonous plants that we haven’t listed here then we’d love to hear back form you.


All the best

Andrew
