Prom adornment

DAY 169 (21 SEPTEMBER) – Hollyhock (Alcea rosa) (Deal, Kent)

I’d always thought hollyhocks were the preserve of old stone walls and thatched cottages. So these made me stop in my tracks during a morning stroll along the front.

They aren’t featured in my Collins Complete Guide to Coastal Wildlife but they’re obviously thriving on the shingle here and blend beautifully against the grey waters of the Channel.
