Tissue Paper Flowers

Many years ago the nuns at Russia Local School taught us how to make these tissue paper flowers for decorative purposes. That's what these white hollyhocks in my garden remind of today. By the way Russia Local School may have been the only school or one of the few in the U.S.A. that had nuns and priests teaching in the public schools. When I attended it there were around 360 students in grades one thru twelve with no kindergarten.

Those are nice hollyhocks and double blooms too. I have never seen them before. Mine are old fashioned single blooms.

J&J: Those are wonderful flowers and do look like the tissue paper ones used at weddings and dances. I never knew the name of these flowers.
