Hollyhocks are starting to bloom all over town.

I love them!

I find them to be very feminine.

Maybe because their flowers made for the occasional tropical skirt for Barbie¹?

Or a colorful poncho for Ken?

I’ve been snapping pics here and there around Albuquerque for the last week or so, to see if I could capture my adoration on camera.

I have a feeling this will be an ongoing project…

¹ Just kidding. I was Barbie deprived during my childhood. Obviously, Ken deprived as well.
