Heading for our winter solstice,
for the first time in well over forty years
of living in this climate,
my Hollyhock has shot up and is flowering
as though it were June in the Northern Hemisphere.
A sign of global warming?
Certainly a sign of rapid climate change.
I am not complaining, just a tad astonished
and enjoying it's beauty
in the thin winter sunshine.

How delightful to have all that color in the middle of winter!! Wonderful captures, Arija! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!!ReplyDelete
How amazing. I thought our garden was confused...ReplyDelete
And that hollyhock is a joy.
Hollyhocks bring back so many memories of my Mother's flower garden.I love them.ReplyDelete

it is so amazing how each year can be so different
lovely Sunday to you ~
Nothing normal about weather, but that hollyhock is a pleasure indeed.ReplyDelete
Whatever the season, it's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Lovely lighting on your photos. We had such a mild winter in the UK that many thins just kept growing through the winter that would have normally succumbed to the frost. It's a crazy old world.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! The colour is so pretty.ReplyDelete
one of my most favourite flowers. How lucky you are.ReplyDelete
Yes, my hollyhock blooms in summer best between Dec and March. Lovely images, Arija. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, JoReplyDelete

It is astoundingly beautiful, but also a little frightening the way the seasons are getting confused.ReplyDelete

Beautiful! Although I must admit I am very concerned about climate change.ReplyDelete
