Well...this hollyhock is HUGE and finally blooming!
And take a wild guess what happened when we visited Lowe's...yup we bought 2 more passionflowers! LOL Well they were the smaller lower cost ones and different varieties! How could we resist? I will say we were very good and didn't buy the $25 clematis that was SO PRETTY and so tempting!!! I mean it's not everyday you see clematis in the desert! Wow this is how bad it is...I kinda wish we had bought it! HAHAHA

I absolutely love the look of this dark red hollyhock and even more so surrounded by bachelor buttons that came back on their own!
There have been a few colors of bachelor buttons that weren't around last year I love when that happens! I like the pink and white combo.
My fave pink wave petunia that reseeded. In this pot is also a calabrachoa that wintered over(you have to look very closely to see the small light pink flowers), and a strawberry.
I loved the way this looked with the cannas starting to get big and the wave petunias growing in it, and then the marigolds growing into the petunias. Isn't that one of the prettiest marigolds? I love the leaves so lacy and the flowers are very small. There is a sea of these marigolds that reseeded!
My spot in the garden has a pretty red mandevilla blooming and my geraniums that haven't stopped all winter!
