January Bloom Day: white hollyhock

Bloom Day/enclos*ure: hollyhock

One hollyhock plant came up among the pole beans and kale in our vegetable garden.

Bloom Day/enclos*ure: hollyhock

It started blooming last week.

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day is the 15th of every month.  To see what’s blooming today in other bloggers’ gardens, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens.

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.

    1. I was thinking that too.

      For these two photos, I opened the image on iPhoto and then — with the ‘Effects’ buttons — clicked up the ‘Fade’ and ‘Boost’ to 3 and 6. Then I heightened the definition and sharpness, and increased the blue and pink just a little. It’s still a white hollyhock bloom, but the texture and effects of light are enhanced.
