Hollyhocks

Hubby and I have just returned from a gorgeous 2 week holiday on the French Island of Ile de Re.  Hubby said that I must have taken a million photographs of Hollyhocks in passage ways - he exaggerates!  The Hollyhocks were almost finished, but I did manage to find a few.







 I shall be catching up with all your blogs as soon as possible - what have you been up to?

Just the one million?! Seriously how could you have not taken so many photos when every thing looks so picture perfect. I LOVE that last one, the bike is just fab, would make a stunning postcard.
