Well, how could you stay mad at such beautiful dogs? The petal on the lip was a dead giveaway. LOL. Gee, the irises and peonies look lovely together, Hazel, or they did. Are any surviving?

They're all still lush and green, but the blossoms are, alas, spent...or eaten! :laughing:

Don't ya know that flowers are enriched with vitamin D?

Vitamin D = Dogs! :D :lightbulb:

Hazel, yet another fabulous story and pics. I was laughing out loud at the end of the series, the petal in the mouth is a dead giveaway! :laughing: Your pack obviously keeps you guys fully entertained. So beautiful always.

Thanks, DD. And I think I might have found a hollyhock survivor in the garden! :eek:

Hey, now that you say that I realize I don't have any hollyhocks in my yard this year!! What's with that? Do they die off after a year or two? I thought they just kept coming back year after year.

I don't know. :o This is the first one that's ever survived long enough to get more than 3 inches high... :p Are they biennial, maybe? Foliage one year, bloom the next, then reseed? Some of my rudbeckia seem to be like that--the black-eyed susans seem to only show up every second year :shrug:

Well I googled hollyhocks and I didn't even know there were two different kinds. Guess I'm going to have to seed the beds again. Now that I know they're missing I miss them! But I also saw several notes that said people's dogs were digging up the bulbs and eating them and getting very sick, so be careful HRP. They didn't seem to think they were toxic, but they do apparently upset tummies quite badly.

:eek: Thx for the warning! It's in the fenced garden so should be okay, but once in a blue moon there's a break-in. I'll add it to my list of things to check once the perps have been removed from the restricted area. :)

Hollyhocks like Foxgloves are Biannual flowers. They have green foliage one year and bloom flowers the next.

I had Hollyhocks years ago and the flowers came the next year but nothing after that. This year, I planted foxglove with large blooms so I'll have to see if anything happens to them next year. Not sure? :shrug:
