As Summer sadly draws to a close and the evening become short the weather cooler and rain splatters the window's.... My thought's drifted far away to a summer afternoon on the way back home from walking the dogs the bees were going about their business and one of the gardens we happen to pass had the most glorious array of hollyhocks. I adore these they bring back memories of going to visit the rich side of the family !!! Not that any of the Uncles and Aunts were very rich but in my youthful ignorance anyone who could afford their own house and have such a beautiful garden must be rich indeed. My Uncle Harold and Auntie Jan Live there still. He will be 90 and she is a sprightly 83, wonderful they were each others first love and their devotion when I go to see them, which is not nearly enough still shines through. Well this card put me in mind of their garden with the flowers from my childhood the lovely Hollyhock's that were taller then I. The Daisy's (Margarite's) the snapdragons wall flowers and roses all had their tale to tell in that garden. Sadly now though still tended with love the garden has lost it's glory age and time have taken their toll but I have only to close my eyes and I'm back as a child dancing in the Hollyhocks.
