Hollyhock Dolls

P8140377.JPG When I was a little girl my mom taught me how to make hollyhock dolls. We had hollyhocks growing next to the house where I grew up and I’d make hollyhock dolls whenever the fancy struck me and I had the right ingredients.

I taught Clare how to make them a few years ago, but have never been successful at growing hollyhocks myself.

So, while I cannot make any hollyhock dolls this year, maybe the flowers will produce seeds which will sow themselves and we’ll be able to make them next year.

Keep your fingers crossed.
