At Hollyhock House, 1921, Frank Lloyd Wright - Hollywood, California

There are three major Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the neighborhood. The 1923 Stoner House is about a half a mile to the west, and you can almost see it from the front door. The 1924 Ennis House is up in the local hills, a few miles to the east, and just down Hollywood Boulevard is the 1921 Hollyhock House. Hollywood itself sits in the middle of the triangle, although there is no evidence that Frank Lloyd Wright thought much of Hollywood one way or the other. But it was a fine June day and Hollywood looked like this from Hollyhock House up on Olive Hill.

It's June. The jacaranda trees are in bloom.
