Thanks so much, Arlene, Wilma, taosmtngirl, and Lynn!! :-) I just love these---they were rather small this year--in years past they've been larger, more the size of the bright pink ones. I planted them from seeds about 6 or 7 years ago maybe longer and they've been faithfully coming up every year even in this harsh winter climate. :-)

Oh, this brings back such nice memories. My neighbor tried his darnedest to hybridize a black tulip, and he did get a color similar to these beauties. I loved to make little "ladies" out of a bloom and a bud, and float them in a saucer of water.

I don't know if I have seen black hollyhocks before and they are neat. I got some black petunias this spring, and they have narrow yellow lines in the petal centers so they are different also. Nice shot. Like this heat???

About minnesotamom


Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)
