I know you will not believe this...

Temperature was about 5C last days, and even after one night, that it dropped below 0C, that hollyhock is still in his best bloom!!

well... is that not a proof, that age doesn't matter? feelings do matter - right?

It feels like blooming, so what would you do about it? Just accept it...

Beautiful! And your're right, Ewa, "age" is not counted by years, but by one's attitude... ;)

Have a beautiful day in your beautiful garden.... but don't stay there for too long, is too cold... ;)

I agree, it's all about 'attitude', Ewa. 'Pretty in Pink' November blooms, you lucky gal!

Ewa, that Hollyhook really proves it - age doesn't matter, just as you said! That flower is so very pretty, I hope you will be able to enjoy it for at least a couple of more days. We have really cold weather right now...
Thanks for joining Blooming Friday! I hope you wil have a very nice weekend!

Beautiful, beautiful photos. I can't believe you still have flowers! I'm just about in the northern part of British Columbia, Canada and nothing is blooming anymore.

I don't believe anything is blooming in our garden now. We have had too many freezes.

Where I work has hollyhocks they have long stopped blooming but there are many plants just waiting for next years season of bloom.

Beautiful hollyhocks.
Didn't realize they can tolerate the cold tempertures. No luck with mine this past year but after seeing your amazing blooms I'll have to try again next year.
Have a great weekend !

What lovely flowers in bloom ! I have exactly the same variety (& even colour !) of Hollyhock in my garden here in Tanzania, East Africa. Isn't that amazing, that it grows so well on opposite sides of the world ?! I planted mine from seed carefully carried back from South Africa. It grows very well here in the sun, & gets quite tall, too - up to 2 metres ?
