high summer Hollyhocks

Against the brick wall of the 19th century building across the road from camp, they have been growing there for countless summers. 

But, did you know...hollyhocks were commonly planted around the outbuildings of a homestead. A refined lady did not have to ask for directions to the outhouse, she just looked for the hollyhocks and took care of things from there, saving her dignity.
