miss dilly and her patten leather purse!

meet miss dilly.
my scarecrow. standing guard... in the garden.
shooing away unwanted guests....
with her white, patten leather purse from the 1950's.
her dress? a strapless prom or bridesmaid dress.
found at a thrift shop for $2.

this year, i planted magenta colored hollyhocks from seed.
they're spectacular. and deserve their own row, in my vegetable garden next year!

love them.
they're so old-fashioned.
i especially like how they bloom until frost!
lot's of bang for your buck!

happy friday night!
see you tomorrow.
smile, wink, nod.

Love Miss Dilly...too cute! ;-) The flowers are beautiful, all that color! We used to make dolls out of hollyhocks when we were little.
