I have a sign on my garden shed that reads
"I shan't go to work today.... my hollyhocks are blooming"
I would have hundreds of hollyhocks if I would let them grow. I pull them out like weeds but many of them grew this year and started blooming but I still dug them up (while blooming.... insert gasp) on Saturday and threw them away..... I still have lots of hollyhocks growing in places where they shouldn't be. Now I'm really not liking the hollyhocks but I deal with it, thinking when they are done blooming I am digging every single one of the up and throwing them away. I'm done with hollyhocks!!!
So now Tuesday morning I get an e-mail from my neice and this is all it says
"Connie, your hollyhocks are BEAUTIFUL".
I sent her back a reply and gave her a piece of my mind, yep I told her where the bear ____ in the woods.......I guess I won't be throwing them away after all....... okay they are very, very pretty and make a huge statement in the gardens, why won't they behave?
