Flower swords of summer


Flower swords of summer

When I was a youngster I would break off a stalk of hollyhocks and use it as a sword.
We had mighty battles in our neighborhood and pity the outcast who was designated the "dragon" that day.
All the mothers chastised their "knights" for devastating their flower beds and for pummeling each other.
