Cynthia's Mystery Squash... Revisited!

Here's Cynthia's photo of her Mystery Squash...

Sorry to take such a long time getting back to Cynthia's Mystery Squash!

On the day that I read your post, Cynthia, about the Mystery Squash... I happened to look down at my Hollyhocks growing right outside my front door.

Could it be??? Hollyhocks???
The leaves of your Mystery Squash sure look like the leaves on my Hollyhocks!
But I don't know.... so my best guess... is that your Mystery Squash is a Hollyhock plant! Guess it won't be long before we learn the truth... Can't wait!!!

More info on Hollyhocks can be found here.


  1. very good blog, congratulations
    regard from Reus Catalonia
    thank you

  2. Hmmm. Could very well be! Your leaves are a bit larger, but hers could be farther behind.

  3. Great post- thanks for the hollyhock info. Mine are just sprouts right now but I am hoping they grow...then I will try to transplant them! Thanks again!

  4. Wow!! Looks like the same type leaves to me :)

  5. You know I thought it looked like hollyhocks when you first post about it.

  6. Hi Toni-
    I would have loved to find out that my Mystery Squash was a hollyhock. They are one of my favorite flowers. I grew some last year but sadly none came up in the compost. Now the borage....that is another story!

  7. Hi Cynthia! Let me know if you'd like some Hollyhock seeds. I'd be happy to share! You can email me at


I *LOVE* your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
