Hollyhock Opening in Morning Dew

My favorite time to photograph flowers is in the early morning or right after a rain as the light changes.

    Completely unrelated to the post– I was looking through an 1918 edition of “The Farm Journal” and found instructions on how to break boulders Walter-style (build a fire around them to heat them up, then pour on cold water). Cool!

    It did note that “there is no danger of pieces of rock flying,” which I believe was *not* your experience…. : D

    • I would be cautious of flying pieces. They’ve never killed me…

      Another trick is drilling holes in the rocks, filling them with water and letting winter freeze crack the rocks. Sort of the opposite. This one is even safer but harder work.

    I have hollyhocks for the 2nd time this year (they are bienniel and bloomed last year and came back this year, with some of their off spring . . . so doesn’t that mean I should have more next year?) These bienniel flowers make me dizzy!
