Back in the spring, Adam started lots of flowers from seed. Unfortunately, many of them did little to nothing. However, he did have some success! Here are his hollyhocks. He planted them because he remembers his grandma growing them in Nebraska when he was a boy:
These next ones are amaranthus, which I was not familiar with. They were supposed to be INCHES tall, but they must be 7 feet. Ah well. Still beautiful. The color is unusual for a flower, very "fallish."
