Hollyhock






This Hollyhock is a volunteer. A plant that grew from a previous year's seed. I tried harvesting the seeds and planting them, but I had no luck! I'm not trying to toot my own horn or anything, but my thumbs are partially green. Most of this month I've spent in the vegetable garden. I'll have to make a photo tomorrow.
I worked this image in Photoshop using a blur filter in layers to achieve that soft look.
