I had a little stroll around the allotment last week and discovered these beautiful hollyhocks.
So reminiscent of cottage gardens and they always remind me of hand embroidered linens. I'm very tempted to get my sketchbook and watercolours out or to start stitching. Very inspirational.
Grown with the roses they look magnificent.
The wooden structure at the end of the path houses our compost toilet which was officially opened last year. Quite a unique feature!
Wild poppies and grasses.
A display of sunny marigolds. They look so outstanding en masse.
My little stroll certainly made me feel better.
